Editorial Reviews


Fink's argument is convincing, her passion for the subject is obvious, and her research is thorough.--Nebraska History

Challenges historians, sociologists, and those concerned with rural policy to attend to gender and class relations as central categories of analysis.--Journal of Interdisciplinary History

An important work not just for those concerned about rural women, but for all scholars concerned with community and change.--Rural Sociology

From the Back Cover

Challenges the widely held assumption that frontier farm life in the United States made it easier for women to achieve rough equality with men. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Having grown up in rural Ohio in a time when single family farms were disappearing I was curious to understand the history behind the lives of the women I knew. And while researching my own family history I found a branch that migrated west to Nebraska. Although this book focuses on Nebraska, the forces that influenced the lives of these women were the same across rural America.

This is no feminist manifesto. It presents the facts and lets them speak for themselves.

The writing is first rate, readable, and accessible, and not at all burdened with academic jargon.
