Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

More than Petticoats: Remarkable Idaho Women tells the history of the Gem State through the stories of thirteen pioneering women, all born before 1900, who made a profound impact on Idaho. Meet Sacajawea, Lewis and Clark's Shoshone guide; Jo Monaghan, who lived as a man for nearly forty years; Margaret Cobb Ailshie, who ran Idaho's biggest newspaper; and Nell Shipman, an actress, writer, and early filmmaker. Each woman in her own way displayed remarkable courage, hope, and love during a time when Idaho was still an untamed frontier. Read about their exceptional lives in this collection of absorbing biographies. (6 x 9, 160 pages, b&w photos)
