""Every woman will encounter loss, grief, and profound difficulty. But happiness, achievement, and success are in front of us as well,"" writes editor Nancy Carson in Believing in Ourselves: A Celebration of Women. Carson introduces 35 North American women who, in various ways, have triumphed over obstacles. Susan Edwards-Bell overcame cancer and is now an advocate for the homeless. Sonia Sotomayor grew up in a Bronx housing project and was the first Latina named to the U.S. Court of Appeals. Mary-Lisa Orth lived on welfare during her struggle to become a top industrial engineer. B&w photographs accompany each profile, making this a likely gift item. 100,000 first printing. (Mar.)
