1st ed.
Until Marian Meyer chanced upon an 1885 newspaper article, no one even suspected that Mary Dodson Donoho had preceded Susan Magoffin as the first Anglo-American woman to journey the Santa Fe Trail to Santa Fe by more than a decade. Magoffin came in 1846, but Donoho and her husband William took their first child with them over the trail in 1833. Historian Meyer's meticulous research has produced this fascinating biography of a pioneer Anglo woman, whom she aptly calls the "new first lady of the Santa Fe Trail." William Donoho was instrumental in securing freedom for three woman captured by Comanches--Sarah Horn, Mrs. Harris, and Rachael Parker Plummer, and accounts of their 1830s captivity and release are also given.
