Tennessee women : their lives and times by Beverly G Bond( )

12 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and held by 2,273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collective portrait of Tennessee women includes suffragists, civil rights activists, and movers and shakers in politics and in the music industries of Nashville and Memphis, and others. The biographical essays illuminate the lives of figures like reformer Frances "Fanny" Wright, blueswoman Alberta Hunter, and the Grand Ole Opry's Minnie Pearl (Sarah Colley Cannon) and less-well-known characters like the Cherokee Beloved Woman Nan-ye-hi (Nancy Ward), antebellum free black woman Milly Swan Price, and environmentalist Doris Bradshaw. Told against the backdrop of their times, these are the life stories of women who shaped Tennessee's history from the eighteenth-century challenges of western expansion through the nineteenth- and twentieth-century struggles against racial and gender oppression to the twenty-first-century battles with community degradation
