Black Women of the Old West

By: Katz,William Loren
Price: $19.95

Simon and Schuster Children's Publishing,1995
Black women were always part of America's westward expansion. Some escaped slavery to live with the Native Americans, while others traveled west after the Civil War to settle the new lands. They came as servants and as independent pioneers struggling to make a life in the wilderness. Brief text and extraordinary photos record many of the black women who went West to find a new life for themselves and their families.
