More than Petticoats: Remarkable Alaska Women (More than Petticoats Series)
This book explores the lives of twelve distinctly different women who arrived in territorial Alaska by birth, choice, or chance. Meet Nellie Neal Lawing, a trapper, hunter, and musher, who as legendary "Alaska Nellie" entertained tourists in her Trophy Room when the Alaska Railroad made it an official stop; Benzie Ola "Rusty" Dow, who became the first woman to drive the Alcan highway delivering a load of cement from Fairbanks to Dawson in just seven days; and many other women who impacted the history of Alaska.
