RED RIVER WOMEN by SHERRIE S. McLeROY-PB/1st.

Author: Sherrie S. The women carry river water: poems. Their Own Frontier: Women Intellectuals Re-Visioning the American West (Women in the West).

Each year, dozens of Canadian Aboriginal women are murdered or disappear never to be seen again. It was his duty inspector with news that a body had been found weighted down in a bag in the Red River, the river that runs through Winnipeg and is the lifeblood of the city. Within an hour, O'Donovan was at his desk in the city speaking to officers and handing out assignments. The body was in such an advanced state of decomposition it took four hours to determine it was that of a young woman. It was another few hours before detectives could settle on a tentative identification.

We've all heard how the west was won with the help of the Colt 45 and the Winchester and Henry Repeating Rifles, but what you may not have heard was whose hands those guns were in. The women of the west had to be tougher, stronger and more ruthless than the men. They sacrificed. They sacrificed greatly for the men who loved them. Follow five of these women through their lives to see how their sacrifices helped tame the wild west.

During the Victorian era (1837-1901), many women took the best and worse of Texas and not only endured, but thrived. Author Sherrie McLeRoy profiles eight of these women who shared a simple link of geography by living on the bawdy, brawling Red River for at least some critical part of their years. Their contributions have not been fully recognized and their accomplishments speak of a strengh and determination not only to survive, but to overcome every concievable obstacle. Their stories are nothing short of heroic.Included in the book are Lucy Kidd-Key (Woman Educator of the South), Enid Justin (Lady Bootmaker), Lucy Pickens (Queen of the Confederacy), Sophia Porter (Confederate Paul Revere), Ela Hockaday (Headmistress), Edna Gladney (Crusader), and Lydia Starr McPherson (Newspaper Publisher).

Women who were just as instrumental in the history of this region of the American West are all too often overlooked. I'm glad to see a book devoted to some of them.

Their stories have finally been told. In McLeRoy's meticulously-researched and entertainingly-written account, she highlights the important roles played by eight women in the early development of North Texas, women you've probably never heard of before, whose lives and exploits are a lot more interesting than those of mavericks like Belle Starr.
Few more harrowing tales have ever been told than that of Olive Ann Oatman. At the age of 13, she watched horrified as Indians clubbed to death her father, her pregnant mother, her three sisters and one brother. Another brother, left for dead, survived his head injuries and later made his way back to civilization. But Olive Ann and her seven-year-old sister were taken captive by the rampaging Apaches. Her story of captivity, slavery, starvation, and ultimately, of survival, is only one of the thrilling true stories in Red River Women.
Two pioneers in women's education, a woman who built a family empire on boots, an intrepid newspaper publisher, one woman known as "the Queen of the Confederacy," another called "the Confederate Paul Revere," the founder of the multi-million dollar facility that is today the oldest adoption agency in Texas--these are the other seven. Their carefully researched stories make inspiring reading.
