Based on true accounts. Mary Fields was born into slavery. She was allowed to grow up with her owners' daughter, Molly and was taught to read and write. After emancipation, Mary found it difficult to remain close to her childhood friend and struggled with many jobs throughout her life. At sixty years old, Mary became the first black woman mail carrier and became known as "Stagecoach" Mary. Even though she frequented saloons, smoked cigars and fought like a man, she was loved by the town of Cascade and given more privileges than a white woman.
