Summary
A fascinating and rare look at women pioneers and their tales of courage and hardship in the untamed American West.These are the stories of twelve women who heard the call to settle the West and who came from all points of the globe to begin their journey: the East Coast, Europe, and as far away as New Zealand. They endured unimaginable hardships just to get to their destination, and then the next phase of their story began. These are gripping miniature dramas of good-hearted women, selfless providers, courageous immigrants and migrants, and women with skills too numerable to list. All the women in this book did extraordinary things: One became a stagecoach driver, disguised as a man. One became a frontier doctor. One was a Gold Rush hotel and restaurant entrepreneur. Many were crusaders for social justice and women's rights. All endured hardships, overcame obstacles, broke barriers, and changed the world--inspiring examples for the modern woman
