A very interesting story and one I, and most avid readers, probably have never heard or read about when thinking of the old west. Surprised a movie has not been made about this person. A woman stage coach drive reportedly one of the best, from a orphan raise in a New England orphanage. Lead me to read about Charlotte/Charley on Wikipedia. Would encourage anyone to read the book - man and women - as I am sure it has a different meaning to each gender.
