Well, I have to add my vote to yours for Laura Ingalls Wilder -- at the same time as you, but on the other side of the globe, I was also immersing myself in her delightful, moving, heart-warming, unique biographical writings. I learnt more about American pioneer life than I could ever imagine, as a 10-year-old Australian schoolgirl! But that's not why I read them, nor why I loved them. If you've read them yourself, you'll know why.

One of my other heroines is Dorothy L. Sayers -- http://www.sayers.org.uk/dorothy.html

This link is to a biography page from her official website. I think her place as one of Oxford University's first female graduates is one of her most impressive achievements...in addition to her wonderful Lord Peter Wimsey novels! Although this link doesn't say so specifically, I believe she was in the first intake of female graduands in 1915.
