Told in a unique first-person creative nonfiction narrative, Women Writers of the West profiles five women driven to write and succeed at a time when ambition in women was viewed as a flaw, not an asset--Helen Hunt Jackson, Jessie Benton Fremont, Louise Clappe, Mary Hallock Foote, Gertrude Bonnin.
About the Author
