Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Traditional history texts often skim the surface of women's history or leave it out all together. With in-depth and accurate coverage, this series pays tribute to the often unheralded efforts and achievements of the women who settled the West. Pioneer Anna Maria Pittman Lee, (1803-1838), suffragette Abigail Scott-Duniway (1834-1915), and physician Bethenia Owens-Adair (1840-1926) are among the 12 women featured in this collection of intriguing and inspiring biographies.

I'm a rather reluctant history-book reader, but I found this book thoroughly compelling! My husband and I read the stories out loud on our trip through Oregon and watched the past come alive. If you are tired of the same, old dusty Western tales, give this one a try. It's sure to enchant you! And thanks to the author for putting these stories together.

This book portrays the lives of 10 women who successfully made the transition from the "doll or drudge" category of the sterotypical Pioneer Woman. They become independent women leading successful lives in their own right, in spite of being dealt very poor hands when they came to Oregon.

I wanted more about each person encountered. Hard to find books about these women. Each thumbnail sketch could be turned into a historical novel. Wish someone would write one!
