Title Daughters of the West
Author Seagraves, Anne
Physical Description 176 p. : ill., ports. ; 23 cm.
Published Date 1996
Summary Daughters of the West captures the feminine side of the West and tells of the colorful and courageous ladies who earned the respect of the male-dominated Wild West. Horse-trading ladies, like the legendary "Mustang Jane", ruled the range with their six-shooters. The "Queen of Diamonds" rode sidesaddle over the rough terrain with her cowhands and a new breed of gutsy girls fought their way to fame in the male-dominated world of rodeo. Others made quieter, gentler changes.
From the famous and infamous, to the unsung heroines - cattle queens, petticoat prisoners and dedicated schoolmarms - they represented the feminine side of the American frontier and brought a woman's touch to an otherwise uncivilized land.
