Flyin’ West

by Pearl Cleage

In Flyin’ West, set in 1898, four African American women escape their pasts as former slaves and find a home on the wild frontier of Nicodemus, Kansas. Sophie, a political advocate for African-American rights; Fannie, a woman whose kindness makes anyone feel at home: and the baby of the family, Minnie, an educated woman, who brings home her new husband, Frank, and an unexpected problem.
