Remarkable Nevada Women
Meet 12 spirited and resourceful women of Nevada, all of whom were born before 1900 and displayed remarkable courage as they broke through social, cultural, and political barriers to advance women's roles and lead extraordinary lives.
Meet Ferminia Sarras, a Nicaraguan immigrant with four young daughters who arrived in Nevada in the early 1800s determined to seek her fortune as a miner . . . and succeeded; Dat so la lee, a Washoe Indian renowned for her basket-weaving artistry whose work is today preserved in museums; and Anne Henrietta Martin, a lifelong suffragette who fought for women's rights and was instrumental in securing the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment, giving women the right to vote.
Each of these Nevada women demonstrated a remarkable determination and independence of spirit that continues to inspire new generations. Learn about their extraordinary lives in this highly readable book. (Published by National Book Network in 2005 ~ Shipped by publisher.)
