Mighty Women: Stories of Western Canadian Pioneers
"Mighty Women" profiles thirty-two women pioneers who made their mark on western Canada: feisty Mother Fulham, Calgary's indomitable keeper of pigs; Emily Carr, the great artist and writer; and Marie-Anne Lagimodiere, a grandmother of Louis Riel and a courageous adventurer in her own right--just to mention a few.
Formerly titled..."And Mighty Women Too," Grant MacEwan's newly reissued book once again salutes the women, past and present, whose determination, sense of humour and tenacity made western Canada what it is today.
