Rate this:
This book presents vivid and compelling biographical essays on the struggles and achievements of multicultural women from the Midwest to the Pacific Northwest and California in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Taken together, these stories bring to life the complex and contradictory nature of gender, race and culture in the American West. Included in this collection are essays on: an African-American entrepreneur; a northern Paiute activist; an Ursuline nun; a Chinese homesteader; and a Chippewa-Creek basketball player. Highly entertaining, the essays are conceptually sophisticated yet clearly written, and are complemented by historic photographs and illustrations. Combined, these features ensure this exceptional book has great appeal for a broad general audience as well as for serious scholars of women's history and American studies.
