Women Who Tamed the West

     Women Who Tamed the West were a special breed from Sacajawea with a baby on her back who guided the Lewis and Clark Expedition to Charley Parkhurst who drove a stagecoach for thirty years and no one knew she was a woman

     It was out west that women were recognized in the political arena with the right to vote and the first woman governor way before the rest of the nation was ready to accept her.    There were women such as Annie Oakley  who never stepped foot into the west but who made the west famous in the Wild West Shows and then there were women like Calamity Jane who lived in the trenches of the west 

     The real women of the west were the wagon train women who walked from the Mississippi River to the Pacific coast.   Women like Marcus Whitman's wife, Narcissa, who was the first white woman to cross overland to Oregon.   Every morning they cooked the meals, tended to the children, watered the horses, nursed the sick and wounded.    They gave birth and kept moving, they fought Indians and kept moving, and they buried their dead and kept moving, West!   It was these women that kept their families direction on course and held a nation together
