About the Book

Men are usually the heroes of Western stories, but women also played a crucial role in developing the American frontier, and their stories have rarely been told.

This anthology of biographical essays on women promises new insight into gender in the 19C American West. The women featured include Asian Americans, African-Americans and Native American women, as well as their white counterparts. The original essays offer observations about gender and sexual violence, the subordinate status of women of color, their perseverance and influence in changing that status, a look at the gendered religious legacy that shaped Western Catholicism, and women in the urban and rural, industrial and agricultural West.


About the Author:

Dee Garceau-Hagen is Associate Professor of History and Chair of Women's Studies at Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee. She is the co-editor of Across the GreatDivide: Cultures of Manhood in the American West (Routledge).
