Eight chapters profiling eight women who were indeed well beyond the ordinary. They lived in Western Canada and flourished for the most part in the first half of the twentieth century. Ranchers, actresses, mountaineers, aviators, doctors, and writers, Kupecek's women are all rebels, filled with a zest for life and a determination to make their own way, and their own name.
