Men explored the West, but Women civilized it.

Pioneering Women of the West

By Anna Kathryn Lanier

Coming in September at Hearts Through History Online Campus


The West was discovered by men looking for adventure and fortune.   But it was civilized by women who brought families, schools, churches, and stability to the area.


In PIONEERING WOMEN OF THE WEST, you’ll learn about the western movement, the treacherous journey hundreds of thousands of people took and the lives of specific women who helped shape the West, intentionally or not. Some went looking for a better life; others followed their man into the wilderness. 


There will be three lectures a week, with time for questions and answers and additional research on the participants’ part.

When you speak your words echo only across the room
or down the hall.
But, when you write, your words echo down the ages. --Bud Gardner
