High-Spirited Women of the West (Women of the West) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Profiles of ten courageous women who helped shape history are told in this inspiring and entertaining book. These high-spirited women left conventional roles behind, becoming America's early feminists. Some were bold and rebellious like Belle Starr and Ann Eliza Young. Many, such as Sarah Winnemucca and Abigail Duniway, were dedicated to their causes; others, like Jessie Benton Frémont, to the people they loved. Demanding acceptance on their own terms, they proudly took their place in history beside the men of the untamed West.

Descriptive text accompanied by period photographs provide glimpses of these strong women and the people they touched as they blazed new trails for the women of the 20th century.
