Women of the West - Volume 5

Rick Steber

Categories: Oregon

Resource Description

Early-day women of the West are depicted in fading photographs: a gaunt, bonneted figure in a long dress walking beside a wagon, baby cradled in her arms, children scattered behind, a woman, looking older than her years, stirring lye soap over an open fire, a dance hall girl on stage, miners watching her every move…

Eastern women were relegated to conduct themselves within strictly-established social boundaries. Western women… not so much. Western women were allowed more freedom, and in the process they tamed the wild west. Read stories of incredible women such as Sacajawea, “The Farmer’s Wife”, and many more. This book will need to be returned.
