Copyright:  May 31 1999
Non-Fiction

This cavalry wife's charming memoir on audio is a good look at Old West Arizona

Amazon
Beverly's, Ltd.

In 1874 when Martha Summerhayes came as a bride from the coast of Nantucket to Fort Russell in Wyoming Territory, she learned the hard facts of army life at forts in Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, California, Nevada, Oregon and Nebraska.


Excerpt

"Oh, if I could only dress as the Mexicans do! Their necks and arms do look so cool and clean. I have always been sorry I did not adopt their fashion of house apparel. Instead of that, I yielded to the prejudices of my conservative partner and sweltered during the day in high-necked and long-sleeved white dresses."
