America’s tales of taming the Wild West rarely include women. But in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, more than 100,000 pioneering young women left their homes to work in the restaurants of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe depots. See this exploration of the lives, experiences and contributions of these women who were the face of the Fred Harvey Restaurant empire. HARVEY GIRLS: OPPORTUNITY BOUND airs on KTWU-HD, Digital Channel 11.1, on  Sunday, November 24, at 7 p.m.
