Stagecoach Mary, Mary Fields, Cascade MT, Live in MT, History, Montana

Fields was known for her physical ability as much as for her reliability. In fact, "She broke more noses than any other person in central Montana; so claims the Great Falls Examiner, the only newspaper available in Cascade at the time."
