"What one gains in Charlotte Markman Stein's autobiography, Buffalo Jump, A Woman's Journey Through the 20th Century - knowledge, understanding, and inspiration.

About the Author

Charlotte Markman Stein was born in St. Paul, Minnesota and was raised in Great Falls, Montana. In 1941, she moved with her family to California and upon her arrival Charlotte said, "Los Angeles was known as the land of the Golden Dream, but to me it is not a dream of being a movie star, or riches, but of tolerance for all people, all religions, and creative ideas." Charlotte's varied experiences include working for the Navy during WWII, a career as a commercial artist, marrying a war veteran, and participation in feminist activities. Over her 92 years, Charlotte became a published author, started a small press, and continues to write and follow her passions daily.
