At the end of the Santa Fe Trail by Blandina Segale( Book )

27 editions published between 1912 and 2019 in English and Italian and held by 683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally published in 1932 and long unavailable, this memoir by a strong-willed and resourceful nun is a valuable addition to the story of women in the West. Sister Blandina (1850-1941) served in southern Colorado and northern New Mexico from 1872 to 1894 as a member of the Sisters of Charity of Cinncinati. She possesed a singluar determination to get things done, as in 1876 when she demolished a dilapidated building serving as a school. Having no funds to replace the structure she declared, "Our assests are good-will and energy"--And her example inspired artisans to volunteer in building a new school. Sister Blandina dedicated herself to teaching Hispanic childrn, tending the sick, visiting prisoners, assisting orphans, and raising money to further missionary activities among Hispanics and Native Americans. She quickly recognized the essential injustice of the settling of the West and observed that the Native Americans' "right to the land we call America is unquestioned"--Back cover
