Wicked Women: Notorious, Mischievous, and Wayward Ladies from the Old West

WICKED WOMEN                                            CHRIS ENSS

 This collection of short, action-filled stories of the Old West’s most egregiously badly behaved female outlaws, gamblers, soiled-doves, and other wicked women by offers a glimpse into Western Women’s experience that's less sunbonnets and more six-shooters. Pulling together stories of ladies caught in the acts of mayhem, distraction, murder, and highway robbery, it will include famous names like Belle Starr and Big Nose Kate, as well as lesser known characters.

PAT'S REVIEW


This is differently a book for mature people. The women here were subjected to a life of struggle due to what was thrown their way in the 1800’s. Some were orphaned, widowed and such had to make a living by any means in that time period. What was okay for men is still looked down in our society and if they owned a saloon, brothel, or robed they were not looked at or glamorized like the male cater parts. Some of the stories I had heard about before, Big Nose Kate, Belle Star. But Libby Thompson “Squirrel Tooth Alice”, and Jennie Rodgers, to name a few I had not. There are more from San Francisco, to Denver, the Black Hills, and Texas. Overall I found this book to be interesting and well written. I got this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 4 stars.
