Unforgettable Women of the Century

Major wear on Dust Jacket. When Lucille Ball stuffed conveyor-belt chocolates down her shirt, we remembered. When Barbara Walters asked the "What kind of tree would you be?" question, we remembered that, too. From Georgia O'Keefe to Margaret Thatcher -- from Gilda Radner to Princess Grace -- here are the real stories behind the female icons who won a permanent place in our hearts, as only People could tell it.

Covered Wagon Women

By Kenneth L. Intro Holmes

1995. Paperback. New. The women who traveled west in covered wagons during the 1840s speak through these letters and diaries. Here are the voices of Tamsen Donner and young Virginia Reed, members of the ill-fated Donner party; Patty Sessions, the Mormon midwife who delivered five babies on the trail between Omaha and Salt Lake City; Rachel Fisher, who buried both her husband and her little girl before reaching Oregon. Still others make themselves heard, starting out from different places and recording details along the way, from the mundane to the soul-shattering and spirit-lifting.
