She Wore a Yellow Ribbon: Women Soldiers and Patriots of the Western Frontier

Overview

From the earliest days of the western frontier, women heeded the call to go west along with their husbands, sweethearts, and parents. While many of these women were attached to the army camps and outposts that dotted the prairies, others were active participants in the skirmishes and battles that took place in the western territories.

Overview

From the earliest days of the western frontier, women heeded the call to go west along with their husbands, sweethearts, and parents. While many of these women were attached to the army camps and outposts that dotted the prairies, others were active participants in the skirmishes and battles that took place in the western territories. Each of these women—wives, mothers, daughters, laundresses, soldiers, and shamans—risked their lives in unsettled lands, facing such challenges as bearing children in primitive conditions and defying military orders in an effort to save innocent people.
She Wore a Yellow Ribbon tells the stories of twelve such brave women who served their country on the early frontier. These heroic women—Buffalo Soldiers, scouts, interpreters, nurses, and others—displayed a depth of courage and physical bravery equal to or surpassing that of many men of the time. Their remarkable commitment and willingness to throw off the constraints of nineteenth-century conventions helped build the West for generations to come.

Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
When men moved into the American West, many of the women who went along suffered terribly; some elected toughness. This book tells the stories of 12 of the latter, only a few of whom—especially Elizabeth Custer and Calamity Jane—will be familiar to most readers who pick up this book. The women featured in this book were the wives of military leaders who lived in or near forts and sometimes found it necessary to pick up a gun. Some were Indians. They performed the normal functions of women but also hunted, served as interpreters, cared for the sick, became apologists for their husbands, and even became full members of the military. Add to US history collections that include a section on the West for its huge fan base. KLIATT Codes: SA—Recommended for senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2004, Globe Pequot, Two-Dot, 180p. illus. notes. bibliog. index., Ages 15 to adult.
