Lonesome miner wants wife to share stake and prospects. Please respond to Louis Dreibelbis in Grass Valley, California.

-San Francisco Magazine, April 12, 1873
So read the ad 22-year-old Eleanor Berry of Gilroy, California, responded to in a respected literary journal. Little did Eleanor know that Mr. Dreibelbis wasn't who he said he was.

This is just one of 12 stories honoring the courageous women who left their mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers behind to go West. Their stories are sometimes tragic and sometimes funny. Even though they never knew one another, they had one thing in common - uncommon courage.

The featured quilt of the book - the Star's 2010 block-of-the-month project - is offered in two different colorways - Jan's version and Edie's version.

Also, as you delve into the book, you'll find quick and easy projects honoring the pioneer spirit. The church was the community gathering place for families on the frontier and Jan reminds us of that with her Church Bells in the Snow wall hanging. The 9-block Gone Fishing quilt reflects the importance of nature's offerings for the hardy pioneers who made their way West.

Whether you make the featured quilt, your favorite block or one of the projects, you will be reminded of the incredible pioneer spirit and bravery shown by the intrepid women who stepped into the unknown and made history.
