"Inspired by the tiny glimpses of interesting characters relegated to the sidelines of history, Lisa Dalrymple began digging up as much information as she could find about women whose stories were never given the same weight as the men they lived alongside. Based on hands-on research from original sources carefully woven into the tales, Dalrymple fills in story to create dramatic accounts of strength, endurance, cunning and bravery. These women from the past inspire with feats most people would never even dream of, at a point in history where their gender, race or social status make their accomplishments all the more remarkable. Riveting writing combined with rigorous research makes Fierce as eye-opening as it is thrilling to read. Includes the stories of Marguerite de la Roque; Thanadelthur; Catherine Schubert; Charlotte Small; Alice Freeman (AKA Faith Fenton); Lucile Hunter; Ada Annie Jordan (AKA Cougar Annie); Victoria Cheung; Mona Parsons; Joan Bamford Fletcher."-- Provided by publisher.
