About the Event
The history of the West is not just the story of men. It is the story of men and women. In this talk, Jack tells us the fascinating story of just some of the women on the Arizona frontier, and a tough and hardy bunch they were, who would bring civilization to this land. He focuses on three, an Apache woman, a Spanish woman, and a New England woman. They have three different stories but all poignant to the development of Arizona. Others include Chinese, African American, Jewish, Morman, and ranch women. Also, there are governors, judges, a bridesmaid of Elenor Roosevelt, the Captain of the “Arizona Navy,” the first territorial historian, a famous painter and architect, and the last stagecoach robber. This talk is often requested by women’s groups.
