Join me August 1-31 at the Hearts Through History Campus for a month-long workshop on Pioneering Women of the West.
You'll learn about the western movement, the treacherous journey hundreds of thousands people took and of the lives of specific women who helped shape the West, intentionally or not. Some women 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.
August 1-7: Introductions; Syllabus; Western Movement overview
August 8-14: Who Went; Westward Ho!: Getting Started; Keturah Belknap
August 15-21: The Women: Mail-order Brides; Teachers; Doctors
August 22-28: Off the Beaten Path: Makers and Shakers; Miscellaneous
August 29-31: Wrap-up
