Meet the little-known women who, seeking adventure and opportunity, and drawn by manifest destiny, settled in the underdeveloped American west in the nineteenth century and made a monumental yet largely unrecognized impact on the country. To overcome the challenges of migrating to a new land, women took on responsibilities that were at the time untraditional, such as participating in public service and coproviding for their family. Over time they would establish schools and churches, attend and graduate from coeducational colleges, and become the first women in America to vote. This immersive read sheds light on the fascinating individuals who forever redefined the American Woman, and offers a riveting history of America's Old West. (HC)
