"Pretty as a Victorian cameo and, when necessary, tougher than two-penny nails." That's what they used to say about Nellie Cashman, so-called "angel" of the Wild West. She caught the pioneering bug when Ulysses S. Grant told her to seekadventure out west, and go west she did.
In a life that would include working as a prospector, store owner, nurse and restaurateur, Cashman would always find time to help those in need. After moving to British Columbia to cash in on a gold strike, she heard that dozens of men were stranded in Cassiar Mountains in a snowstorm, Cashman immediately gathered a small crew to mount a rescue. Attempting to save these men was considered so dangerous that eventhe Canadian Army wouldn't go.
