The Whip is inspired by the true story of a woman, Charlotte "Charley" Parkhurst (1812-1879) who lived most of her extraordinary life as a man. 

As a young woman in Rhode Island, she fell in love and had a child. Her husband was lynched and her baby killed. The destruction of her family drove her west to California, dressed as a man, to track down the murder. 

Charley became a renowned stagecoach driver. She killed a famous outlaw, had a secret love affair, and lived with a housekeeper who, unaware of her true sex, fell in love with her.

Charley was the first woman to vote in America (as a man). Her grave lies in Watsonville, California.

The Whip

Probably the most engaging tales ever and to think, It’s true!

Loved The Whip!

Fantastic - can't believe it is based on a true story. Charlie is a one in a million character. Living close to where the book is set brought a deeper appreciation for the terrain she conquered. A must read!
