Miantae McConnell brings to life Mary Fields, a woman who born into in slavery who becomes a pioneer on the Montana frontier. Despite constraints and prejudice due to her skin color and gender, she earns the respect and affection of her community. Her strength of character leads her to independence and even to become the first woman voter in her town in the time of the woman’s suffrage movement.

The author captures the authentic voices of pioneers and of Native Americans, of missionaries and of politicians through regional dialects and evocative descriptions. Although grounded in Montana’s history and environment, the book sheds light on the struggles and experiences of all who formed the American West. Mary Fields and the people around her come to life in this engaging narrative about a truly inspiring woman. ( )

If you enjoy historical fiction, you won't be able to stop reading this American West story full of drama and authentic characters. If you gravitate towards social justice issues and enjoy dramas with contrary points of view, look no further.

McConnell expertly transports the reader into the landscape of Montana. Her prose lingered in my mind and prompted me to imagine how I might have fared as a pioneer in Mary Fields' world. I love stories that ignite me, inspire me to root and cheer for fearless risk-taking women! ( )

Absolutely the best historical fiction book that I've read since James Michener's novels. But this book is a true story. I was in tears when I finished this remarkable book about Mary Fields, African American woman. Kudos to the author, Miantae M McConnell for meticulously doing the solid research and for bringing Mary White Crow Fields into our lives and awareness. I very highly recommend this book, especially if you're at all interested in Montana history and the African American treasure who helped the women of Montana gain the vote. Just an amazing real woman, black, white or yellow. I'm eagerly looking forward to another book from Miantae McConnell! ( )
