This is an excellent book with many stories of every imaginable character - from the gentle Eastern lady to the bar-room brawlers -- all of which went West to begin life anew. It is obvious that Dee Brown has done a lot of research, and he knows how to put together a very interesting read of many amusing stories as well as the serious and harsh effects the West had on women. If you like history at its best, you will enjoy this book.

Outstanding history of women in the American West, from the author of "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee".

Very interesting look at the women of the old west. Not something I would usually read but was pleasantly suprised by how much I enjoyed it.
