Miscellaneous
From a rediscovered collection of priceless autobiographical accounts written by hundreds of pioneer women. Never before has there been such a detailed record of women's courage, such a living portrait of the women who civilized the American frontier. Here are their stories: wilderness mothers, schoolmarms, Indian squaws, immigrants, homesteaders, and circuit riders. Their personal recollections of prairie fires, locust plagues, cowboy shoot-outs, Indian raids, and blizzards on the plains vividly reveal the drama, danger and excitement of the pioneer experience.
