When we think of the building of our country it is always the men who are thought of. This book tells of the strength and courage of the women who lived during that era and worked as hard as the men. Some of them had to take over a large ranch after the death of their husbands which was not easy for a woman. They had to provide for their families as widows.Having lived in Texas for the past two years many of the people and places have significance to me. Many of the cities, towns and villages are named for the people in the book. And the fight with Santa Ana for independence from Mexico is described very well, is exciting and I felt as though I was there. I enjoyed the book and recommend it highly. I will always treasure the history of Texas and my time living in the Lone Star State.
