Summary Born at the start of the Civil War, Juliette Gordon Low grew up in Georgia restless in the life of a good Southern belle. "Daisy" married a British aristocrat and moved to England. Ultimately betrayed by her husband, Daisy was dissatisfied by the aimlessness of privileged life. Her search for a greater purpose ended when she met Robert Baden-Powell, adventurer, war hero, and founder of the Boy Scouts. Daisy aimed to do the same for young girls.
