Synopsis

Real stories of five women of the Old West (approximately 1860-1915), told in their own words and reenacted by five actresses. Rare photos and early film footage create a base for dramatic portrayals of a Piute Indian scout who made great efforts to help her people during the Bannock War of 1878; a freed slave who was one of the first black women to reach Denver and who set up a laundry business, but returned to Kentucky to find her family; a charismatic healer and a legend of the Mexican Revolution; a 15-year-old Chinese girl who settles in Sitka, Alaska, and becomes a midwife and the first female trawler-fisherman; and a prostitute who was the last of the redlight queens.
