Women of the Pleasant Valley War provides a rare look at the women’s lives during one of the bloodiest feuds in American history. Jayne Peace Pyle had painted a picture of the hardships, fears, and isolation the women endured. Pyle used legal records, family histories, and the history of the war itself to tell the women’s stories. Some of the women included are: Lydia Tewksbury, Mary Ann Tewksbury, Bertha Tewksbury, Lizzie Rose Samuel, Annie Melton Graham, Susan Smith Ellison, and Mary Blevins. “Jayne Peace Pyle’s roots grow deep in Arizona’s Mogollon Rim Country and there’s no person better qualified to write this definitive book on the woman of Pleasant Valley.” -Arizona State Historian Marshall Trimble Easy to read type, old photos, perfect binding, 8 ½ x 11 inches, 184 pages, and a large index.
