She Wore a Yellow Ribbon

By: Chartier,JoAnn
Price: $11.95

The Globe Pequot Press,2004.
From the earliest days of the western frontier, women heeded the call to go west along with their husbands, sweethearts, and parents. Many of these women were attached to the army camps that dotted the prairies as wives, daughters, and camp followers, and some were active participants in the skirmishes and battles that took place as the burgeoning population of the United States surged into territory where Native Americans were once free to roam. She Wore a Yellow Ribbon tells the story of these women--Buffalo Soldiers, scouts, interpreters, nurses, and others who served their country in the early frontier.
