Belle Cora Part 1 Bon Voyage New Orleans

Who were the first women who came to California, and who was already here? 

Legendary Native, Spanish, American and Immigrant women, who had made their own way, in a time where women were not so welcome to do so.

Rarely heard of women and it was also their stories that played a part in shaping the future of the United States, in one way or another, and I want you to know their names. The golden state’s Whoremistress Extraodinaire begins her grueling voyage to California via Panama.

*Some characters are created by me, but represent true stories of other 49ers who they could have crossed paths with. 

Written, Narrated and Produced by Andrea Anderson. Male Narration by Slim Cessna.  Theme song "In San Francisco Bay" by DBUK.  Banjo picking by Col J. D. Wilkes. You can find links on our website at ** Research References will be posted at the end of each Chapter.
