From Pocahontas to Sarah Winnemucca,
Remarkable Stories of Native American Trailblazers
Publisher: The Globe Pequot Press
Jan contributed the first two chapters to Wise Women, legacies of women caught between two nations. The biographies of Nevada Territory’s Sarah Winnemucca Hopkins, champion of her Paiute people, and Washoe basket weaver Dat So La Lee, personify the Native American women who shaped their cultures and changed the course of American history. These brave and intelligent women often put their own safety and the lives of their families at risk by taking on the roles of peacemakers, diplomats, and spokeswomen for their people.
