She Dared: True Stories of Heroines, Scoundrels, and Renegades (Paperback)
These are the stories of women who took up challenges that society felt could be met only by men: Mina Hubbard’s incredible journey across Labrador; Martha Black’s adventures in the Yukon; Sara Emma Edmonds’s perilous missions as a Yankee spy in the Civil War.
While some of these women achieved legitimate fame, others gained notoriety. Pearl Hart became a Wild West desperado. Cassie Chadwick fleeced bankers for a fortune in one of the most brazen con games ever played.
Famous or infamous, the women in Ed Butt’s fascinating book are sure to intrigue readers.
