Daughter of a Daughter of a Queen by Sarah Bird


4.5 ⭐️

The buildup in this story was slow. But once I reached Cathy's induction into Sheridan's troops, I couldn't put it down.

This was a unique glimpse into an authentic part of the Wild West seldom discussed or acknowledged. The fact that Cathy's story was largely undocumented and had to be pieced together based on oblique references scattered through the historical record, is a testament to Bird's tenacity.

Highly recommend as a gritty portrayal of the dangers women faced on the frontier, and the snapshot of a woman who should be part of every secondary history curriculum.
