Mendocino was graced by many strong and remarkable women, but their history isn’t always easy to find. The author of this volume did the research necessary to find the diary entries, letters, and newspaper articles that reveal their lives and accomplishments. Chapters cover everyone from indigenous women to 20th century heroines, and 50 photographs show the women in action and repose.
