Moving portraits of twelve courageous women who taught – and tamed – the Wild West.

Between 1847 and 1858, more than six hundred female teachers traveled across the frontier to provide youngsters with an education, and the numbers grew rapidly in the decades to come. Enduring hardships, the dozen women we meet in these pages demonstrate untold dedication and sacrifice to bring formal education to the Wild West. The women introduced their students to a world of possibilities – and changed America forever.
