Frontier Teachers

SKU: 3198

Frontier Teachers tells the stories of a dozen courageous, intrepid women who faced down rooms full of children on the open prairies and in the mining towns of the Old West to bring them educational opportunities. Between 1847 and 1858, more than six hundred female teachers traveled across the frontier to provide youngsters with an education, and the numbers grew rapidly in the years to come. Enduring hardship, the dozen women we meet in these pages demonstrate untold dedication and sacrifice to bring formal education to the Wild West.
