These stories of largely unknown women bring to life the difficulties that both men and women experienced in the American West before and during the time of the Gold Rush. A very well put-together volume of fascinating stories. Illusrated with daguerrotypes and photos, it doesn't gloss over the hardships involved, and altogether makes readers wish they could have known these pioneers.
