Ruth Pelz has a longstanding interest in uncovering the hidden histories of women and working people as well as ethnic and racial groups in our society. She has learned from personal experience that history is meaningful only if we see ourselves as taking part in it. This is her seventh book. She lives in Seattle where she is education manager at the University of Washington Burke Museum.Review:
"...a book focused on educating people about influential women of many different races and ethnic backgrounds that lived in the "Wild West." Short biographies of Sacajawea, Biddy Mason, Mary Bong and many others will fascinate young readers. You don't recognize and of the names? All the more reason to check this book out." -- Skipping Stones
"From five different cultures-Native American, Asian, Hispanic, and African American-eight adventuresome women who contributed to the development of the west are profiled in this book. Social studies teachers who want to supplement their texts with real stories about the contributions of women in American history will welcome these biographical sketches." -- Iowa Reading Journal
"The fourth book in the Contributions Series, Women of the Wild West profiles eight women from five different cultures who exemplify the overlooked contributions that women made to early U.S. history. All books in the series are about minorities who played a role in shaping U.S. history. Written at fourth grade reading level, the books can be used with adult new readers as well as children." -- International Reading Association
