Hidden Treasures of the American West: Muriel H. Wright, Angie Debo, and Alice Marriott Paperback – September 16, 2006
"Loughlin illuminates the contributions of Wright, Debo and Marriott to the study of the West and American Indians."
"A fine book. . about three authors who deserved to be remembered and probably are unkown to many young readers, even in Oklahoma."
"Loughlin's compelling study enlivens these women so well that you'll find yourself inspired to read each of their far-reaching books."
As Oklahoma approaches its centennial year, 2007, this book offers a meaningful chapter in its overall regional history. a look at three unconventional women, who were public intellectuals and had a tremendous impact on people in and outside of their state.
""Hidden Treasures" is much more than an argument about properly crediting its three central figures for their work. Its primary strength lies in the striking portraits it gives of the women themselves."
"By properly positioning Wright, Debo and Marriott in the historiography of the American West, the American Indian and American women, Loughlin has demonstrated her own authority on important segments of all three."
From the Inside Flap
The stories of two women historians and one anthropologist of the 1930s and '40s and their work in Oklahoma and the Southwest.
