Barbara F. Vucanovich | by Barbara F. Vucanovich and Patricia D. Cafferata

Barbara Vucanovich was sixty-two when she ran in her first election, becoming the first woman ever elected to a federal office from Nevada. In this engaging memoir, written with her daughter, she reflects on the road that led her to Washington—her years as mother, businesswoman, and volunteer. Patricia D. Cafferate served as Nevada state treasurer and district attorney of Lincoln, Lander, and Esmerelda Counties. She lives in Reno, Nevada.
