From the Back Cover:


A riveting look at an untold chapter of Western history Pioneer, Polygamist, Politician tells the fascinating story of Martha Hughes Cannon, the first woman elected to the Utah state senate in 1896. She was a polygamist wife, a practicing physician, and an astute and pioneering politician. In compelling prose, author Mari Graña traces Cannon’s life from her birth in Wales to her emigration to Utah with her family in 1861, her career as a physician, her marriage, her exile in England, her subsequent return, and her election to the Utah state senate. Her husband was the Republican candidate she, a Democrat, defeated in that historic election.  

About the Author:

Mari Graña is the author of Pioneer Doctor: The Story of a Woman’s Work (TwoDot), a biographical story of her grandmother, pioneering physician Mary Babcock Atwater; and a book about New Mexico regional history, Begoso Cabin, which won the 2000 Willa Cather Award from Women Writing the West.
