I have read a number of really good history books about women in 19th Century America. This is not one of them. I found it to be shallow and, in a number of instances, historically inaccurate. It didn't spend much time in my house after I finished reading it.

From the earliest days of the western frontier, women heeded the call to go west along with their husbands, sweethearts, and parents. While many of these women were attached to the army camps and outposts that dotted the prairies, others were active participants in the skirmishes and battles that took place in the western territories. Each of these women-wives, mothers, daughters, laundresses, soldiers, and shamans-risked their lives in unsettled lands, facing such challenges as bearing children in primitive conditions and defying military orders in an effort to save innocent people. This book tells the stories of 12 such brave women who served their country on the early frontier.
