Description
Without the Irish, says radio broadcaster and historian Myles Dungan, the American frontier may never have been tamed. In this colorful history he weaves accounts of the Breen and Murphy families—members of the Donner party, forced into cannibalism to survive the winter—and mountain men like Thomas Fitzpatrick, who rediscovered Robert Stuart's South Pass through the Rockies. Here too are women like Lola Montez (Eliza Rosanna Gilbert from Sligo), a famous stripper and one of the most-sought after courtesans of her era, and Ellen "Nellie" Cashman, who ran boarding houses and bought and sold claims in Alaska, Arizona, and Nevada.
