- The most comprehensive book about Rose has to be Ann Blackman's Wild Rose: The True Story of a Confederate Spy.
- I also found an old book, Rebel Rose: Life of Rose O'Neale Greenhow, Confederate Spy, by Ishbel Ross particularly useful (if pretty rah-rah Confederacy, which gets kind of intense).
- Rose's memoir is very readable, too.
