Item Description...
Overview
Incredible true stories of the most amazing women in American history.

They were courageous, resourceful pioneers, enduring and adventurous. They made arduous journeys, carved careers out of the wilderness, defied conventions, and fought for their freedom. They were community leaders, artists, and entrepreneurs. These Outrageous Women of the American Frontier boldly faced the gritty realities of daily life - everything from starvation to shootouts - and made their mark in history!

Among the outrageous women you'll meet are:

  • Charlie Parkhurst - who disguised herself as a man, drove a stagecoach for twenty years, and was probably the first American woman to vote
  • Bridget "Biddy" Mason - a former slave who gained her freedom in the 1850s and made enough money to set up several homes for the homeless, sick, and old
  • Gertrudis Barcelo - Santa Fes "Gambling Queen" who kept her maiden name, owned her own casino, and helped the United States win the Mexican-American War
  • Libbie Custer - wife of the famous general and a talented writer who chronicled her frontier adventures in books that made her a wealthy woman

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A great book!  Apr 10, 2002
I bought this book for a child but read it first myself -- and was blown away. The author makes it fun, but it's so full of information too. These amazing women are so inspiring, I was amazed that I had only heard of about half of them. I realy liked that the book includes some new faces, as well as the old standards like Calamity Jane. These women deserve to be lots more famous than they are and I hope this book helps that happen. To learn about history while being totally entertained is great for kids especially, but I recommend it for anyone age 8 to 108 too!
