On The Night Stand

For many of us, the expression "wild woman" conjures late 19th- and early 20th-century images of early American West rebellious daughters, dance-hall girls, cowgirls, and female outlaws. The fourth volume in Fulcrum's popular Notable Westerners series, Wild Women of the Old West presents the sensational lives and exploits of 9 notorious women from the days of boisterous frontier saloons and high-noon showdowns. With essays on such intriguing characters as Baby Doe Tabor, Emily D. West (Morgan), Sadie Orchard, and Calamity Jane, Wild Women of the Old West explores both the myths and realities of these women's iconoclastic lives.

I am only 2 Chapters into this book, but am loving it.
