Description

Discover the stories of twelve women who heard the call to settle the west and who came from all points of the globe to begin their journey.

As a slave, Clara watched as her husband and children were sold, only to be reunited with her youngest daughter, as a free woman, six decades later. As a young girl, Charlotte hid her gender to escape a life of poverty and became the greatest stagecoach driver that ever lived. As a Native American, Gertrude fought to give her people a voice and to educate leaders about the ways and importance of her culture.

These are gripping miniature dramas of good-hearted women, selfless providers, courageous immigrants and migrants, and women with skills too innumerable to list. Many were crusaders for social justice and women's rights. All endured hardships, overcame obstacles, broke barriers, and changed the world.

The author ties the stories of these pioneer women to the experiences of women today with the hope that they will be inspired to live boldly and bravely and to fill their own lives with vision, faith, and fortitude. To live with grit.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: There's admiration in Caroline Shaffer's voice as she narrates the stories of 12 women and their accomplishments in the American West. At the end of each chapter, author Marianne Monson shares the inspiration she found in each story. There are firsts: the first woman to register to vote in Oregon, the first Mexican-American female novelist, the first female state senator. There are stories of adventure, such as that of a woman who, disguised as a man, drove a stagecoach. There are personal stories, such as an African-American businesswoman's search for her daughter. Shaffer performs a variety of voices to preserve the women's words. Listeners will no doubt find the women Monson writes about as admirable as she does. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine
