Publisher's Summary

Charlotte Parkhurst was raised in the mid-1800s and was expected to live her life without the freedoms she dreamed of. But Charlotte was smart and determined, and she figured out a way to live her life the way she wanted. She became an expert horse rider, a legendary stagecoach driver, and the first woman ever to vote - at a time when such things were outlawed for women.


What the Critics Say

"[An] ebullient and tautly structured novel that moves along at a gallop." (Publishers Weekly)
"The author provides a compact and exciting story about real people who exemplify traits that readers admire. A concluding note tells more about the historical facts surrounding Parkhurst's life, but kids will read it just for the adventure." (School Library Journal)
