It's one thing to read in history books that settling the West was wrought with hardships and high mortality rates. It's another to read the stories of the people who actually experienced these hardships. Women of the Frontier tells the stories of sixteen women who overcame numerous obstacles to settle the frontier. Their stories are well-researched and told with such detail, that the reader can feel the frustration and pain these women went through. This book makes history come to life.

Women of the Frontier is a perfect book for students doing research on how the West was settled, and for anyone interested in American history.

I am a major history buff and I could not put this book down. Miller is an awesome writer and has done huge amounts of research for this book--and the women she profiles come to life on the page. Highly recommend.

I really did not know what to expect with this book. What I got was a peek into the lives of some very strong, courageous women. Some lived, some died, but their stories were engrossing . I cannot imagine leaving everything and everyone you know to head into the west. Worth the time to read.

I think I fell asleep while reading this. I give credit to the author for being accurate with the historical facts, though.

Reading this now... interesting how scams and mis-information prevailed - even then there were those eager to take advantage of the innocent and trusting!
