Writing about the West has been almost exclusively male territory, perhaps because the few women whom history has recorded were either whores—as in Santa Fe’s Red Light District on West San Francisco Street, where a well-known madam ran a very successful brothel, bar, and gambling den for men coming off the Santa Fe Trail—or Eastern women of means, like Mary Cabot Wheelwright who established the Hogan-shaped Native American museum here.
