Back cover copy

The only woman ever to represent Texas in the United States Senate, Kay Bailey Hutchison has been a trailblazer in the Lone Star State. Hutchison is just one of many women who have embodied what we've come to recognize as the spirit of Texas--rugged independence, fierce loyalty, and an unflappable entrepreneurial streak. In Unflinching Courage, Senator Hutchison tells the dynamic history of her home state through the lives of some of these pioneering women and their remarkable achievements, including ranchers, entrepreneurs, prospectors, stateswomen, and others who valiantly held their ground in the face of unimaginable violence and shaped the proud state into what it is today.

Review quote

"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."--Dale L. Walker, Dallas News
