Women of the West, by Dorothy Gray


The independent-minded western woman was often eclipsed in popular literature by sensations like Calamity Jane and Belle Star. Dorothy Gray looks at the actual lives of women who made their own way out west. Some of the portraits include black freedom fighter, Biddy Mason; Donaldina Cameron, scourge of the Chinese slave trade, as well as Susette “Bright Eyes” La Fleche, the first Native American woman to become a political advocate for her race.
