Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

More than Petticoats: Remarkable Arizona Women profiles the lives of twelve resourceful women from the Grand Canyon State, all of whom were born before 1900 and displayed remarkable courage, hope, and love during the tumultuous settling of the American West. Some of these women are well known, such as Pearl Hart, the original lady bandit, and Luisa Ronstadt Espinel, the talented musician and performer who championed the cause of preserving and promoting Spanish folk music. Others are less familiar, but their legacies are an influential part of Arizona history.

Meet Sister Mary Fidelia McMahon, who built a thriving Tucson hospital; Sharlot Mabridth Hall, a poet and territorial historian; and Polingaysi Qoyawayma, a Hopi Indian teacher who became a bridge between cultures and educated thousands of young people.

Witnesses to momentous social and political events in American history, these women are linked by their determination, their fortitude, and their bravery. Read about their exciting lives in this collection of brief and absorbing biographies.

Synopsis:

With in-depth and accurate coverage, the More than Petticoats series pays tribute to the often unheralded efforts and achievements of historical women. Each title in the series includes a collection of absorbing biographies and b&w historical photographs.

Discover 13 extraordinary women from Arizona's past, including healer and preacher Teresa Urrea; Apache warrior Lozen; rancher and writer Mary Kidder Rak; photographer Carmen Lee; and stage-coach robber Pearl Hart.
