March is Women’s History Month, a great time to order a book from our Museum store about women by women.

Local Author Nancy Herman wrote one of our best selling books, All We Left Behind. The book tells the saga of thirteen-year-old Virginia Reed, who was part of the 1846 the Reed and Donner Party. When the party becomes trapped in the Sierra Nevada Mountains by early snows, she must find the courage to defy her father in order to save the rest of her family. This book won the 2017 Independent Press Award: Distinguished Favorite for Historical Fiction and continues to intrigue readers grades 4 and up.
