From the Publisher

The women of this book exhibited “can-do, forthright frontier spunk;” some were quiet, others were strident. They were nonviolent but definitely militant. Their stories are powerful, exciting, and inspiring, all the more for being the unsung heroines who carved a life out of a vast region and forged a society where strong, intelligent, capable women stood up to forces of nature and political opposition and conquered most obstacles.
