Description

As a woman living on the Missouri frontier in the early 1800s, Olive Boone faced many challenges we cannot imagine today. While her husband was away on hunting and trading trips, she raised their fourteen children alone while also maintaining her family’s farm. At the time, many people thought women were not as strong or as talented as men. But Olive Boone showed she was as good as any man. She helped her family survive and prosper on the dangerous American frontier.

This book is included in the nonfiction book series, Notable Missourians, for young readers in grades 4 to 6 about people who contributed to Missouri’s history or culture and who were born or lived in Missouri.
