Summary

The Women's West challenges the pictures of the masculine west as racist, sexist, and romantic and rejects the customary emphasis of traditional western history on the nineteenth-century frontier, discovered and defined by Anglo men. In its place The Women's West begins the construction of a new western history as complex and varied as the people who lived it.

This collection of twenty-one articles creates a multi-dimensional portrait of western women. The pioneer women presented here were actors in their own lives, not passive participants in their husbands' ventures.
