"Amusing, eye-opening, and beautifully researched." --San Francisco Chronicle
A fascinating and hilarious glimpse into the lives of 150 nineteenth-century American women who refused to whittle themselves down to the Victorian model of proper womanhood.

Autumn Stephens was born in a New Mexico mining community whose population began to dwindle shortly after her arrival (though she swears this was mere coincidence) and finally faded from the map altogether. Stephens has worked as a medical coder, a phone sex scriptwriter, a composer of fabricated Tarot prognostications, and something called a “special investigator” for the State Bar of California. She is the author of over 20 books for women, including the wildly popular "Wild Women" series published by Conari Press.
