Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here in a single volume are 16 well-researched and interesting biographies of women all either born in, or emigrating to, Washington in the 19th century or early 20th century. From pioneer missionary Narcissa Prentiss Whitman, (1808-1847), one of the first white women to cross the Continental Divide to Kick-Is-Om-Lo, (1811-1896), daughter of Chief Seattle, the women epitomize the spirit of the Northwest. Their lives of courage, dedication, and achievement laid the foundation for the Washington of today.

Synopsis:

With in-depth and accurate coverage, this book pays tribute to the often unheralded efforts and acheivements of the historical women of Washington.
