The U.S. Cavalry, the Winchester rifle, and Sam Colt's pistol may have on the West, but it was the Harvey Girls who civilized it. As waitresses in Fred Harvey's chain of high-quality restaurants, the Harvey Girls made the Santa Fe very popular, and left an indelible mark on the Wild West."The narrative is lively, conversational, and spiced with wry humor that will interest even reluctant readers... A solid treatment of an aspect of Western history seldom considered in other texts". -- School Library Journal
