Elizabeth Fry Terry Barber read online review & book description:
This book about Elizabeth Fry is a high-interest, low-vocabulary book for adolescents and adults with limited literacy skills. Elizabeth Fry (1780-1845) visited Newgate prison in 1812. She was horrified by the crowded and dirty prison conditions. The women did their own cooking and washing in the small cells in which they slept. Fry returned the following day with food and clothes for some of the prisoners. This was the beginning of Fry's becoming a major driving force behind new legislation to treat prisoners more humanely.
