From the jacket- "The literature of western history contains many memoirs, journals, diaries, and letters of explorers, gold miners, ranchers, merchants, and the like — almost all of them men. There are fewer records to document the lives of women who also served. The letters of Mary Edgerton provide such a view and thus constitute a valuable primary source for a better understanding of life on the American frontier."
