Pioneering Women of The Wild West: Liz Carter

"Using contemporary accounts and illustrations, we shall follow the travels and life of some amazing pioneering women of the American West. We will experience life and death on the trail; attacks by wild animals and savage tribes; building a settlement and finally finding success. Come along and meet some women like Abigail Jane Scott, Nannie Tiffany and Catherine Haun, to name but a few – not for the faint-hearted!"
