From the Back Cover

More than Petticoats: Remarkable Arizona Women profiles the lives of twelve resourceful women from the Grand Canyon State, all of whom were born before 1900 and displayed remarkable courage, hope, and love during the tumultuous settling of the American West. Some of these women are well known, such as Pearl Hart, the original lady bandit, and Luisa Ronstadt Espinel, the talented musician and performer who championed the cause of preserving and promoting Spanish folk music. Others are less familiar, but their legacies are an influential part of Arizona history.
Meet Sister Mary Fidelia McMahon, who built a thriving Tucson hospital; Sharlot Mabridth Hall, a poet and territorial historian; and Polingaysi Qoyawayma, a Hopi Indian teacher who became a bridge between cultures and educated thousands of young people.
Witnesses to momentous social and political events in American history, these women are linked by their determination, their fortitude, and their bravery. Read about their exciting lives in this collection of brief and absorbing biographies.

Format: Paperback
I have just discovered this book, at a time when I am considering a holiday in the south west of North America. It is so interesting to find out something of the history and character of a region, beforehand. I greatly enjoyed these very readable and well researched short biographies of Arizona women. Their diverse circumstances and achievements are fascinating. The old photos are great, too. Arizona must be quite a place. Thank you, Ms Brown.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By V. M. Badertscher on July 30, 2003
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In twelve lively chapters, Wynne Brown presents a dozen women who represent the variety of pioneer Arizona. From an Apache warrior woman to women who brought the civilizing influence of music and literature to the west, these are fascinating stories. Brown's book is packed with well-researched details that bring the period to life, but reads like a series of short stories. I left the book hoping there would be a second volume covering even more life stories of women on the frontier of Arizona.
