Petra Authors: Fran Vick and Jane Monday
Petra's Legacy: Jane and Fran conspired to bring the story of this remarkable woman to light. The obstacles of research and time were brilliantly overcome. This is not only a Texas story, it is North American story. The "can-do" spirit of the west with all of the intrigue, hope and dashed dreams that we moderns both embellish and forget as is convenient are held to account in a rich and entertaining way in this important book.
Fran's writing consists of being an editor and contributor to the Texas Folklore Society publication, The Family Saga: a Collections of Texas Family Legends, a contributor to Texas Women Writer and Texas Women Up the Cattle Trail, both published by Texas A&M Universty Press and Notes from Texas: On Writing in the Lone Star State, published by TCU Press. She was author of 100 Years of the Eyes of Texas published by and for the University of Texas Exes, Heritage Society.
