Bold Women in Colorado History

Phyllis J. Perry

Bold Women in Colorado History shares the stories of ten Centennial State women, among them Clara Brown, a former slave who ventured west and remade herself into a respected entrepreneur; Chipeta, a Kiowa Apache woman adopted into the Ute tribe, who helped negotiate for peace between her people and the white outsiders; and Dr. Justina Ford, who overcame both racial and gender prejudice to become the first black female physician in the state.
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.
