Texas would not be Texas without the formidable women of its past. Beneath the sunbonnets, Stetsons or high-fashion couture, the women of the Lone Star State carved out ranches, breathed new life into spreads and expanded acreage when husbands, sons and fathers fell. Throughout the centuries, the women of Texas's ranches defended home and hearth with cannon and shot. They rescued hostages. They nurtured livestock through hard winters and long droughts and drove them up the cattle trails. They built communities and saw to it that faith and education prevailed for their.

It's only exhausting when we read how hard life was for these women and how terrible it must have been sometimes to live it. I learned things about ladies I had never heard of and it was a great lesson to try and imagine what they must have been like and how they managed to do the amazing things they accomplished. There was NOTHING easy for these early Texas women! I am in awe of them. Read this and be prepared to feel a little ashamed of yourself the next time the washer breaks down and you complain. This book sure makes you more appreciative of all you're blessed with!

A fun an interesting history of the women of Texas. I found this book to be a well written story of a much neglected side of Texas history. This is a fun read read about a subject that can be mind numbing if written by the wrong individuals, however Ms. Goldthwaite is spot on.

I purchased this book as a Christmas gift and the recipient loved it!! Well written and an easy, enjoyable read
Ms. Goldthwaite has done an extraordinary job of highlighting stories about the effect women had in settling the Lone Star state. The stories are interesting, delightful to read, as well as educational, which in itself is quite an achievement. I want to share this book with all young girls to inspire them to greater heights. While reading about these brave savvy and sassy women, I was filled with gratitude for their contributions in shaping Texas what it is today. They were made of stern stuff, and let us remember that we still are! Brava for a job well done.
