Top Customer Reviews
"Stagecoach Mary was six feet tall and built like a brick house: big-boned and muscular."
"Carry Nation... was six feet tall and weighed one hundred eighty pounds. That's BIG.
Esther Hobart McQuigg Slack Morris: "It didn't hurt that she stood six feet tall and weighed one hundred eighty pounds. She almost always got her way."
