3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Jessica Brannon-Wranosky on November 29, 2004
Format: Paperback
This book was essential in writing my master's thesis. Why? The main reasons were how well written it is, how very detailed the descriptions of relationships between Galvestonian women are, and yet, how broad an audience (not just Texan historians) to whom this work speaks.

Turner describes in detail, and yet still concisely enough to keep the reader's undivided attention, how important pre-hurricane women's organizational structures became when Galveston crumbled post-storm. With death in the thousands and most local leaders killed, local government configuration disappeared. The social and civic aid of the women's organizations in the city had the experience to deal with the direct needs of people. Turner marvelously illustrates how these organizations soon became the life-blood of the city and essential to its resurrection. This is an excellent source for novice or historian, and comes highly recommended.
