K9: I know, sorry. 'Cause it's not like I'm ever NOT mute, right?First to last:Jesse Benton Fremont – daughter to Thomas Hart Benton, wife to explore John C. Fremont. She's the one who actually wrote his reports, the words that sparked America's itch to go west.Gertrude Bonnin – Sioux short story writer.Mary Foote – wrote about mining life in the west.Laura Ingalls Wilder – writer, pit bull owner :o)Mary Jane Colter – architect of the Grand Canyon and designer of Albuquerque’s famed Alvarado Hotel (now sadly destroyed).Willa Cather - no explanation needed :o)Helen Hunt Jackson – passionate advocate for and writer about Native American issues.Joan Didion – essayist preoccupied with the issues facing her native California.Gretel Ehrlich – rancher, writer, traveler. Wrote Heart Mountain, about a Wyoming ranch that becomes an internment camp for Japanese during WWII.Leslie Marmon Silko – probably one of the most famous contemporary Native American writers, she hails from Laguna Pueblo just down the road from ABQ.Courtney Love – brilliant observations through her music and lyrics on the New West’s greatest contribution to pop culture: fame and the worship thereof.

Ahhh the women of the west. Back then the word "tough" and "house wife" were a whole other ball game. I like these photos!
