Her life is portrayed here without sentiment—it was a hard, impoverished time in a grim environment, and yet she managed to find good in the world and engaged it with an “understanding heart.” Learn More

Told with humor and love, Molly’s Hammer shines a light on how the choice of ordinary people to take action is what is needed to save our world.
