Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Here in a single volume are 16 well-researched and interesting biographies of women all either born in, or emigrating to, Washington in the 19th century or early 20th century. From pioneer missionary Narcissa Prentiss Whitman, (1808-1847), one of the first white women to cross the Continental Divide to Kick-Is-Om-Lo, (1811-1896), daughter of Chief Seattle, the women epitomize the spirit of the Northwest. Their lives of courage, dedication, and achievement laid the foundation for the Washington of today.

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Carol J. Palm on October 11, 2000
Format: Paperback
More than Petticoats: Remarkable Washington Women is a fascinating book for anyone even remotely interested in Washington State history. It contains well-written short biographies of sixteen Washington women who lived in the 1800s, some quite famous and some I'd never heard of. Their accomplishments range from being elected the first female mayor of a major American city, to being the first woman to climb to the summit of Mt. Rainier, to founding hospitals and school districts, to receiving the first doctoral degree awarded to a black woman in any subject. This book contains the delightful stories of Thea Foss, who started the Foss Launch Company with the purchase of a single rowboat for $5, and "Klondike Kate", whose eventful life took her north to the Yukon and south to California. As a native Washingtonian, I enjoyed reading about places I know and learning more about them. Maybe the best part was that I found I'd actually known the son of one of these remarkable women!
