Annotation Essays of 100 women whose lives shaped the social, cultural, and economic world of Nevada over the last two centuries. The book celebrates the justly famous but also many less-known teachers, organizers, and suffragettes who influenced the course of the state's history in ways both large and small. In the process, a few popular Nevada myths are busted, reputations are rehabilitated, and some of Nevada's brave early pioneer women are rescued from undeserved obscurity.
