Turning the last corner towards the home stretch.
One person who has been actively watching us create the forthcoming book, "Hellraisers & Trailblazers: The Real Women of The Wild West" is Lynda Sanchez of Lincoln, New Mexico. Jana and I both asked if she might write a blurb for the book and she turned this copy in in a matter of minutes:
"Both Bob and Jana have combined their artistic and authors’ talents to create a classic about the stalwart, gutsy, clever, beautiful, enduring women who helped give birth to a nation and a region—the Wild West. The historic images are enhanced by Bob’s art and imagination; the journalistic quality of both permeates the book and opens up the many shades of Real Women of the Wild West! As they overcame hypocrisy, women gained more power until finally men saw the light and began to open up their world to women who knew what they wanted: freedom,
land, jobs that they knew they could handle if given the chance. Once that bridge was created, women of the west would not be stopped."
—Lynda A. Sanchez, Author/Historian and full time hell raiser (just ask the political saps in Santa Fe who have neglected two of the Southwest's finest historic sites)
"I do not wish women to have power over men: but over themselves."
—Mary Wollstronecraft (1790-1828)
Great job Lynda, as always! Love ‘giving hell’ with you too! Always fun!ReplyDelete
