Overview


More than Petticoats: Remarkable Michigan Women profiles the lives of twelve of the Great Lakes State’s most important historical figures born before 1915. With enduring strength and compassion, these remarkable women, each in her separate field, helped build the proud history of America’s twenty-sixth state.
Magdelaine La Framboise, a Métis fur trader and entrepreneur, used her energies and fortune to build a community on Mackinac Island. Sara Emma Edmonds, disguised as Civil War soldier Frank Thompson, served for two years in the 2nd Michigan Infantry. And Nancy Harkness Love, a teenager when she first earned her pilot’s license, founded the U.S. Army’s Women’s Auxiliary Ferrying division (later known as WASFS) during World War II.
Each of these women demonstrated an independence of spirit that is as inspiring now as it was then. Read about their extraordinary lives in this captivating collection of biographies.
