Roses of the West


Anne Seagraves brings to life the most colorful era in American history and shares the lives of the strong women who played an important role in settling the West. From the courage of Montana's cattle queen and the dedication of Wyoming's first lady governor, to the struggle of a young California girl to become a 19th century doctor, this book tells the feminine side of early America. The wide open spaces of the West inspired people to do great things, and the women in this book were not exceptions. They were the real life heroines who prepared the way for others to follow. All the women, the "roses" of the title, exhibit bravery, the desire to follow their dreams and the courage to begin life anew. Illustrated with B/W photos throughout. Softbound: 175 pages: 6 x 9"
