Editorial Reviews


"Highly recommended for both academic and community library reference collections." - Midwest Book Review

"[O]ne could read the book from cover to cover, which is a lively and informative experience, or use the index to go directly to a subject . . . Even taking into consideration its sophistication, however, this book is primarily targeted at undergraduates. It is highly recommended for history and women's studies collections." - Feminist Collections

"The work is suggested for academic libraries of all levels, especially those supporting a women's or gender history/studies program." - Reference & User Services Quarterly

"This book will be useful in high school and undergraduate libraries looking for materials on the history and cultural influences of women on American culture and history. It is a unique look at the history of women in U.S. history and proves to be both insightful and unique." - ARBA

"This essential addition to the high school collections is written by a scholar in the field―a western women herself--for upper level students…A valuable purchase for the high school, especially for AP US History." - Pennsylvania School Librarians Association

Format: Hardcover
Part of the Cultures in the American West series, Women in the American West is a scholarly textbook surveying the role women had on the development and history of the western United States. Covering the early nineteenth century to the present day, Women of the American West discusses women's mobility, home life, wage labor, immigration, marriage, political participation, involvement in domestic and foreign wars, and more. Black-and-white illustrations enhance this carefully researched text, especially recommended for college courses, independent research, and anyone curious to learn more about the oft-overlooked fair sex's role in Western American history. Highly recommended for both academic and community library reference collections.
