Have your heard of Alicia Patterson? This headstrong heiress founded Newsday (1939) and built it into a successful, Pulitzer Prize-winning publication. In addition, she was an accomplished horsewoman, huntress, and aviatrix. In short, a feminist before the word was invented. Unlucky in love, she was thrice married and had a long liaison with Adlai Stevenson. In The Huntress, Alice and Michael Arlen detail her turbulent and eventful life.
