“Who was the western Woman? What was she like, this gentle yet persistent tamer of the wild land that was the American West?” These are questions that Dee Brown, author of the bestselling Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, sets out to answer in this spirited work of social history. He outlines the many types of female pioneers: housewives to rebels, schoolteachers to saloon women. They included notables such as Elizabeth Custer, Esther Morris, and Lola Montez. Wonderfully attuned to anecdote, Brown describes these extraordinary women with enthusiasm and compassion. He makes a persuasive case that, though men first settled the West, it was women who civilized it.
