Molly By Golly
MOLLY, BY GOLLY: THE LEGEND OF MOLLY WILLIAMS, AMERICA'S FIRST FEMALE FIREFIGHTER by Dianne Ochiltree with illustrations by Kathleen Kemly.
Molly Williams was the cook for the local firefighters. They would often argue about which of her recipes was the best. One snowy evening, as Molly was preparing dinner, she grew worried about a fire breaking out. How could the firefighters make it through the snow? When the fire alarm sounds, Molly rushes out to help the firefighters save the house on fire. Little is known about Molly Williams personal life, but the author does provide what is known as well as some additional resources for young readers. <590>
