Daughters Of The West By Anne Seagraves (1995, Paperback) Non Fiction:
Rough, Tough and in Skirts! These turn-of-the century gals entered a man's world with a vengeance, many of them conquering it.
This action-packed book brings to life the colorful women of the Old Wild West. Horse-trading ladies, like the legendary "Mustang Jane," ruled the range with their six-shooters, "The Queen of Diamonds" rode sidesaddle over the rough terrain with her cowhands and a new breed of gutsy cowgirls fought their way to fame in the male-dominated world of rodeo. Others made quieter, gentler changes.
From the famous and infamous, to the unsung heroines--cattle queens, petticoat prisoners, and dedicated schoolmarms--they represented the feminine side of the American frontier and brought a woman's touch to an otherwise uncivilized land.
