Review:
Lillian Schlissel provides exciting coverage of black frontiersmen, a group neglected by many historians. Photographs and pictures dating from 1852 to 1948 show black men prospecting for gold, riding bucking broncos, and serving in the military. The author also covers three courageous black women: Stagecoach Mary, Mary Ellen Pleasant, and Biddy Mason. Snakes, sports, and storms are just a few of the many interesting details included in this history book.
