Description

Moving portraits of fifteen independent women who helped make Colorado what it is today More Than Petticoats: Remarkable Colorado Women profiles the lives of fifteen of the state's most important historical figures--women from across Colorado, from many different backgrounds and from various walks of life. With enduring strength and compassion, these remarkable women broke through social, cultural, or political barriers to make contributions to society that still have an impact today. Read about: - Julia Archibald Holmes--the bloomer-clad first white woman to ascend to the summit of Pike's Peak, in 1858- Frances Wisebart Jacobs--a compassionate housewife moved to devote her life to supporting Colorado charities in the late nineteenth century- Mary Elitch Long--founder of the famed pleasure grounds known as Elitch Gardens- Caroline Nichols Churchill--a pistol-packing, feminist, journalist dynamo 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
