“With this emphatic conclusion, Elizabeth York Enstam brings synthesis to the facts, supporting details, and inferences that make Women and the Creation of Urban Life: Dallas, Texas, 1843–1920, so readable. She skillfully weaves together newspaper accounts, letters, women’s club papers, and wide-range public documents to provide her readers with a sense of what it was like to be a female in Dallas in the early days.” --East Texas Historical Journal
