In every woman's life, there comes a time when she wonders what she should have done differently, and if it's too late. For Juliette Daisy Gordon Low, that moment was in 1911 when she was widowed in her fifties and completely unsure of what to do with her life. Within the next year, Daisy founded the Girl Scouts of the USA as a group to encourage girls' friendships and make them stronger, more independent women. As the Girl Scouts nears its 100th birthday celebration, this inspirational book brings Daisy's groundbreaking, classic advice to a new audience, through a modern lens. March 2012 marks the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scouts of America and the start of a year long celebration. There are over 3.3 million active members of the Girl Scouts, with close to a million adult volunteers.
