Review

O, THE OPRAH MAGAZINE, "10 TITLES TO PICK UP NOW" FEBRUARY 2018
An indefatigable former slave who braved the Montana Rockies on a journey to rescue a dying friend is the real-life subject of this 19th-century frontier narrative. Adventure abounds in this little-known tale of the heroic middle-aged woman who became the first female African American mail carrier in the U.S.-- Hamilton Cain
MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW
"Under McConnell's hand, the atmosphere, frontier challenges, and landscapes of Montana come to life. Mary Fields is a true historical figure, dramatized in novel format. Her story will delight readers who look for a blend of accurate historical facts, hard-hitting drama, and realistic scenes powered by a feisty protagonist whose values and concerns become part of the social changes sweeping the nation."
--Diane Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
Montana Library Association
I loved the historical biography, Deliverance Mary Fields! I felt like I was right there with Mary Fields.  It was beautifully written and I could hardly put it down.  Being a native Montanan who grew up in central Montana I knew the area where the story took place very well. A definite read for everyone!--Debbi Kramer, Executive Director
Miantae Metcalf McConnell
has fashioned a historical narrative marrying prose and poetry, fact with creative writing. With the discerning eye of a photographer, the deft hand of a historian, and the literary heart of a poet, the life of Mary Fields, legendary black woman of Montana, rises majestically off the page into living history. If the reader has any interest in Mary Fields, aka Stagecoach Mary, Deliverance is the one book you must read.--Cowboy Mike Searles, Author and Emeritus Professor of History, Augusta University, GA. 

Miantae Metcalf McConnell provides us with a great story and history of Mary Fields, an important black westerner. A must read for youths and adults. --Bruce A. Glasrud, Professor Emeritus, California State University, Author.
 
THE WISHING SHELF BOOK AWARDS
A fascinating, hard-hitting saga. A FINALIST and highly recommended.--Edward Trayer

From the Inside Flap

Early Montana-State politics are wild and incomprehensible. Woman ache for suffrage rights, men are vying for power. Racial hatred is on the rise. It is a dangerous time for all. 1885-1914. The Birdtail Valley, Montana.

For those interested in United States and American West History, this book portrays the nation's multiethnic struggle for human rights by presenting factual discoveries and personal life stories.
