Within these pages are tales of fearless femmes who dared to dream and resolved to take action. In Bold Women in Texas History we meet eleven Lone Star women, including Mollie Kirkland Bailey, circus owner and mother of nine, who served in the Civil War as both a nurse and a spy; “Brave Bessie” Coleman, who traveled to France to get the pilot??s license that, because of her sex and her race, she was not allowed to earn in her home country; and Mildred “Babe” Zaharias, one of the greatest female athletes of all time.
From artists to athletes, cattle queens to Congresswomen, these eleven heroines helped make Texas what it is today. Overcoming pressure and prejudice, they pushed through to carve their won paths and achieve their personal dreams. Perfect for school or home, these collections of short but informative biographies are both a valuable resource and an entertaining read. For readers young and old, the Bold Women series proves what women can accomplish when they dare to be bold.
