Overview

Step back in time and experience the spirit of the West through the eyes of five women: Clara Brown, Sara WInnemucca, Nellie Cashman, Isabella Bird, and Margaret Brown. From a newly freed slave to a refined Englishwoman, from a Native American to a miner's wife, these women, vastly different at first glance, have much to teach about perserverance and courage.

Author Biography

Julie Danneberg, a third-generation Colorado native, grew up listening to stories about her grandmother, a miner's daughter, and her great-grandmother, an Irish immigrant turned miner's wife. Love of these women and their stories started her lifelong admiration of all courageous women of the West.
