"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."
Please, Mr. Winter and Ms. Guevera, get over listing women's body sizes as some sort of nod to their importance.
This book overlooks the civilizing influence of women and instead showcases (and lauds) lawlessness and criminal activity. A few of the ladies are admired for their heroic actions, but most of them are portrayed as sideshow freaks.
A much better view of women in the Wild West comes from this book: "Explore! Wild West" Explore the Wild West!: With 25 Great Projects (Explore Your World series)
