NAUGHTY LADIES OF THE PEARLY GATES is a fictional account of what we now know as courageous, independent, adventuresome and in many cases strong willed women who helped settle the west. It is written from the research and imagination of first time author, and prolific artist Karen Carpenter. Naughty Ladies came west as many females came with their families, their men, as mail order brides or alone for a variety of reasons only to find that while there was plenty of opportunity for the men they came with or who were here when they arrived there was very little for themselves beyond the wives, school teacher or sister in the Church situations available in the east. Karen Carpenter mixes the fictional accounts of each of the Ladies with the truth and a fair amount of humor that most any reader will get a kick out of reading.
