Annie Smith Peck (1850-1935) was one of the most accomplished women of the twentieth century that you've never heard of. Peck was a scholar, educator, writer, lecturer, mountain climber, suffragist, and political activist. She was a feminist and an independent thinker who refused to let gender stereotypes stand in her way. 

Author Hannah Kimberley, who has written a biography of this incredible woman, describes her research of Peck’s original letters, artifacts, and ephemera, and brings Peck to life.
