Mary Fields, better known as "Stagecoach Mary," was one of the greatest pioneers in American history. Tall, broad-shouldered, strong, tough, and high-spirited, she never backed down from a fight. She often kept a pistol packed under her apron and a shotgun by her side. These attributes served her well. In her sixties, she could hitch a team of horses faster than men half her age. She was the second woman and first African American female star route mail carrier in the United States. She rode the stagecoach with her horses and trusty mule, Moses, through some of the most dangerous trails in Montana. Her name was legendary, even in her own time.
