Why read it?

1 author picked Levi's & Lace as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

Cleere begins with indigenous women, and moves on to both historic and modern women in medicine, the arts, business, education, and the law. The short biographies of the nearly forty women profiled here are just enough to whet the appetite for more, and are written in an engaging and accessible style.

From Lynn's list on the women of the American West.
