On Sidesaddles to Heaven: The Women of the Rocky Mountain Mission
Distributed by the University of Nebraska Press for Caxton Press
Laurie Winn Carlson analyzes the lives of the first six white women—missionary wives—to cross the Rocky Mountains, offering a fresh and sometimes startling view of these pioneers. At a time when a woman's fortune and future was tied to the man she married, four of the six women married virtual strangers, on short notice, with no financial security. Why did they take such a gamble?

All I can say, based on previewing the beginning of chapter two, is that this author has no intelligence regarding riding sidesaddle whatsoever. She simply has not bothered to do any research concerning the history or art of sidesaddle riding in America or elsewhere. This so put me off what might otherwise be an incredible adventure that I would never buy her book. I don't read authors who cannot be trusted.
