This is a wonderful collection of stories from the lives of remarkable women of the Old West, including Mrs. Mo-cho-rook, Fanny Stenhouse, Belle Starr, Carry Nation, Big Nose Kate, Elizabeth Custer, Madame Mustache, Kitty Le Roy, Apache May, Calamity Jane, Julie Bulette, Charlie Pankhurst, Ella Ewing, Adelita, Belle Boyd, Mattie Blaylock, Kate Bender, Janette Riker, Anna Surratt, and others. Some are tragic; some tragi-comic; all of the women are courageous, colorful, and resourceful characters who did not let their gender get in the way of living life to the fullest.

Phyllis de la Garza has a great eye for detail and an ability to find a single event that illuminates an entire life. She has a storyteller's gift to draw you in make you care about each woman—about her strengths and how she displays them at crucial junctures of her life.
