Chris Enss has the remarkable talent of bringing old west characters to life. In Chris’ latest work, she introduces legendary women such as Calamity Jane and women not so well known; but who should be known for their grit and fortitude. Chris gleans from their lives and the lives of their men folk “Love Lessons” some to follow and some to avoid. Read this book you will not be disappointed.

From Etta Place and her relationship with Butch and Sundance in Bolivia, to Deadwood City with Calamity Jane and Wild Bill Hickok, to Dodge City with Zoe Stratton and beyond, “Love Lessons Learned by Women of The Old West” is a joy to read. This is a journey through the Old West meeting famous women who stood tough and braved what few other women would dare. These are stories you won’t forget.
Chris Enss had produced a marvelous collection of Victorian Western women’s stories in Love Lessons Learned. These ladies, who were looking for love, had the determination and drive every pioneer possessed. Some found true love, while others died with broken hearts. Laugh, smile, and cry with Agnes, Lotta, Maria, and other hopeless romantics living on the frontier.
