WATROUS ― Often stories of cowboys and soldiers highlight the Western Frontier. However, women also were there for the highs and lows of the romanticized “Wild West.”
Many of these first American women in the present day southwest braved journeys overland down the Santa Fe Trail. From Susan Magoffin to suffragist Julia Archibald Holmes, join Dr. Leo Oliva and discover the adventurous lives of some women writers who forged their own story in the American Frontier.
This program is 7 p.m., Friday, Nov. 16 at the CCHP Santa Fe Trail Interpretive Center at 116 Bridge St. in Las Vegas, N.M.
