Editorial Reviews


“Angela Boswell has produced an important and original piece of work that helps fill the enormous gap that currently exists in Southern women’s history. Painstakingly comparing society’s images of women against the reality of farm women’s lives in the nineteenth-century Texas, she describes a hardscrabble world in which most women adhered to domestic feminine ideals that were virtually impossible to achieve. Taking us from Texas’s antebellum frontier state through its experience of Civil War and Reconstruction, she presents us with a changing world in which white and black women struggled form their separate stations to find security in a most insecure world.”--Victoria E. Bynum, Southwest Texas State University
(Victoria E. Bynum, Southwest Texas State University)
