Women of the Sierra


This entertaining and informative book by Anne Seagraves takes the reader back to the mid-1800s through the turn-of-the-century with profiles of fifteen exceptional women who called the Sierra Mountains their home. Women such as stage-driver Charlotte "Charley" Parkhurst, Eleanora Dumont, a gambling lady, and Eliza Mott, Nevada's first schoolteacher, are all profiled. From doctors to innkeepers, these heartwarming stories share the rich and often difficult lives of the female pioneers who fought for independence in the male-dominated West. Illustrated with B/W photos throughout. Paperbound: 173 pages: 6 x 9"
