8 Reviews
Profiles of ten courageous women who helped shape history are told in this inspiring and entertaining book. These high-spirited women left conventional roles behind, becoming America's early feminists. Some were BOLD and REBELLIOUS like Belle Starr and Ann Eliza Young. Many, such as Sarah Winnemucca and Abigail Duniway, were DEDICATED to their causes; others, like Jessie Benton Fremont, to the people they loved. Demanding acceptance on their own terms, they proudly took their place in history beside the men of the untamed West.

Review: High-Spirited Women of the West

User Review  - Susan Kemp Maldonado - Goodreads

Living in California and now in Nevada piqued my interest in this book and it turned out to be very interesting and educational. As an Artist, I really loved the photographs that were included throughout the book. I may do a series of paintings depicting these great women! Read full review

A lovely collection of stories about women in the early West. Easy to digest, delightfully told, and a wonderful way to examine how far women have come in the last 150 years. Read full review
