Sassy and Savvy Women Throughout Lone Star History
The “dames” in this book notched victories in Texas’ history, from early Indian and French to a Fifties golf star. In between string the tales of women who succeeded in business and banking, science and medicine, politics and government, education and religion. These early stories range from the 17th C. through mid 1950’s, snapshots of what it took to break ceilings tougher than glass. They were forging a country, a state, and then civilizing it.
