Women of The Wild West Teasers

 June 30, 2021

   Jana and I have been having fun creating little teasers for our forthcoming book.

Who Is She?

   Kidnapped as a child she was then traded off as a gambling debt to her “husband.” She led strangers with an infant on her back on a 1,000 mile journey and she was never paid a cent but without her the trip was doomed. She will become the most celebrated woman in American history.

   Answers below.

Who Is She?

   She loathed alcohol and the men who drank it. She wrecked more bars than a hundred tornadoes. She withstood the law and scorn and she paved the way for Prohibition.

Who Is She?

   She lost two sets of parents before becoming a national celebrity. She went to her grave with a dark secret.

Who Is She?

   She dressed like a man to fit in. She drank like a fish to survive. She lied like a rug to be remembered. And now she's a legend.


Answers: from top: Sacajawea, Carrie Nation, Olive Oatman and Calamity Jane. All of them featured prominently in our new book on the Women of The Wild West.

   Just in time for Christmas.
