Description
This anthology brings together for the first time the writings of women who ranched and worked the land in the American West, who helped shape the region and the nation's history by leading protest movements, and who meant their voices to be heard, whether in fiction or in political action. Created by two western history professors, The Western Women's Reader combines writing and photography about the West from both famous and lesser-known women writers from the past and present, including Calamity Jane, Teresa Jordan, Beverly Hungry Wolf, Angela Davis, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Tillie Olsen, Velma Wallis, Leslie Marmon Silko, Mollie Ivins, and Linda Hasselstrom. Collected here are the works of fiction, memoir, oral history, and more, all of which bring alive the history and culture of the American West -- and all of which are written by women who share a passion for this rugged region.
