Where to buy

By looking at the ways in which women from vastly different cultures met the day-to-day challenges of keeping themselves and their families housed, fed and clothed, Frontier Women celebrates the contributions women made to the settling of the West. A fascinating collection of rare photographs brings the experience of frontier women to life. Historians Linda Peavy and Ursula Smith have co-authored numerous books and articles on the lives of women in the American West.
