Unflinching Courage: Pioneering Women Who Shaped Texas (Hardcover)
In Unflinching Courage, former United States Senator and New York Times bestselling author Kay Bailey Hutchison brings to life the incredible stories of the resourceful and brave women who shaped the state of Texas and influenced American history.
A passionate storyteller, Senator Hutchison introduces the mothers and daughters who claimed a stake in the land when it was controlled by Spain, the wives and sisters who valiantly contributed to the Civil War effort, and ranchers and entrepreneurs who have helped Texas thrive.
Unflinching Courage: Pioneering Women Who Shaped Texas is a celebration of the strength, bravery, and spirit of these remarkable women and their accomplishments.
“A series of brightly written biographies of an extraordinary gallery of pioneering women, many of whom are unknown even to the most history-minded of Texans. …The lesser-known shapers of Texas are presented in as full and interesting detail as the more celebrated.”
“Former U.S. Senator Hutchison was the first woman to represent Texas in the Senate, and she’s admirably devoted her authorial career to writing women back into the historical record.”
