about

Scholars of the western frontier have hugely expanded their field but this expansion has not generally included the history of education. Herbst is an internationally known scholar and has lectured at the University of Heidelberg, Germany, the University of Hannover, Germany, the University of Vienna, Austria and the International Christian University, Mitaka, Tokyo, Japan. The book narrates the story of how the school, founded by women pioneers of public education in a Rocky Mountain mining settlement, became the centre and sustaining force of the town`s community life from its beginning in the 1870s to the present day.
