Arizona Women Writers and Journalists, 1912-2012
The narratives in Skirting Traditions begin with Jan’s story of Sharlot Mabridth Hall, considered one of Arizona’s first journalists. Were it not for Sharlot’s determination to preserve Arizona history, many relics of the past including priceless journals, diaries, letters and manuscripts would have been lost to history. These biographies personify the pioneering spirit of Arizona’s early women in communication, describing daring feats, patriotic actions, and amazing accomplishments. They are women you will not soon forget.
