Women Icons of the West: Five Women Who Forged the American Frontier (Paperback)
Step back in time and experience the spirit of the West through the eyes of five women: Clara Brown, Sara WInnemucca, Nellie Cashman, Isabella Bird, and Margaret Brown. From a newly freed slave to a refined Englishwoman, from a Native American to a miner's wife, these women, vastly different at first glance, have much to teach about perserverance and courage.
About the Author
