Loosening the bonds : Mid-Atlantic farm women, 1750-1850 by Joan M Jensen( Book )

9 editions published between 1986 and 2004 in English and held by 804 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book--the first to investigate the rich and complex lives of rural women during this period--focuses on women in the Philadelphia hinterland and shows how they became an essential part of that area's rise to agricultural prominence." The author concludes that "rural women in the mid-Atlantic region decreased patriarchal power within the family, became active shapers of the process of commercialization and economic development, and carved out new roles for themselves in public life--providing the base for the development of the feminist movement in the antebellum era"--Jacket

The price of vigilance by Joan M Jensen( Book )

5 editions published between 1968 and 1969 in English and held by 697 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The American Protective League, an army of volunteer sleuths, stepped into the role of providing information on enemy aliens, dissenters, and on private citizens holding unpopular views. Though the 1918 armistice ended the war in Europe, it did not end the silent war at home. The American Protective League was finally disbanded, but its principles flowed into the currents of American ideas, and the organization it spawned continued to influence American though and action

Promise to the land : essays on rural women by Joan M Jensen( Book )

4 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays by a well-known American historian begins with personal accounts of the author's own experiences on a farm commune in the 1970s and those of her German immigrant grandmother in Wisconsin in the early 1900s. Other essays draw on oral history, iconography, and material culture to expand our knowledge of previously invisible women. Essays on Seneca women in New York, black women in Maryland, and Pueblo and Hispanic women in the Southwest document strategies used by diverse rural women to survive difficult transitions. The collection concludes with a look at modern attempts to retain family farms and a survey of new directions for research. Promise to the Land offers insight into a neglected area of American culture and will be invaluable to scholars and students of rural sociology, history, and women's studies -- Book jacket

One foot on the Rockies : women and creativity in the modern American West by Joan M Jensen( Book )

5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This stimulating book examines the experience of women artists in the American West. The women studied here range from Joseppa Dick, Pomo basketmaker, to Georgia O'Keefe; from dancer Isadora Duncan to African-American writer Ntozake Shange and dozens of other women who have lived in a fertile crescent that Jensen calls the Pacific Southwest. By recovering the work of so many writers, painters, photographers, and craftswomen, Jensen expands the history of women in the West. She also explores the cultural climate necessary to support creative work and considers questions of tradition and memory, examining the forms available to writers from several cultures: Buffalo Bird Woman, Christine Quintasket, Ruth Benedict, Sui Sin Far, and Agnes Smedley. Finally she engages the theories of history and creativity that determine what society chooses to remember and preserve -- Book jacket

Travels with Frances Densmore : her life, work, and legacy in Native American studies by Joan M Jensen( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the first half of the twentieth century, scientist and scholar Frances Densmore (1867-1957) visited thirty-five Native American tribes, recorded more than twenty-five hundred songs, amassed hundreds of artifacts and Native-crafted objects, and transcribed information about Native cultures. Her visits to indigenous groups included meetings with the Ojibwes, Lakotas, Dakotas, Northern Utes, Ho-chunks, Seminoles, and Makahs. A "New Woman" and a self-trained anthropologist, she not only influenced government attitudes toward indigenous cultures but also helped mold the field of anthropology
Chasing the cure in New Mexico : tuberculosis and the quest for health by Nancy Owen Lewis( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book tells the story of the thousands of "health seekers" who journeyed to New Mexico from 1870 to 1940 seeking a cure for tuberculosis (TB), the leading killer in the United States at the time. By 1920 such health seekers represented an estimated 10 percent of New Mexico's population. The influx of "lungers" as they were called--many of whom remained in New Mexico--would play a critical role in New Mexico's struggle for statehood and in its growth. Nearly sixty sanatoriums were established around the state, laying the groundwork for the state's current health-care system. Among New Mexico's prominent lungers were artists Will Shuster and Carlos Vierra, who "came to heal and stayed to paint." Bronson Cutting, brought to Santa Fe on a stretcher in 1910, became the influential publisher of the Santa Fe New Mexican and a powerful U.S Senator. Others included William R. Lovelace and Edgar T. Lassetter, founders of the Lovelace Clinic, as well as Senator Clinton P. Anderson, poet Alice Corbin Henderson, architect John Gaw Meem, aviator Katherine Stinson, and Dorothy McKibben, gatekeeper for the Manhattan Project. New Mexico's most infamous outlaw, Billy the Kid, first arrived in New Mexico when his mother, Catherine Antrim, sought treatment in Silver City"--
Women in agriculture : professionalizing rural life in North America and Europe, 1880-1965( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Women have always been skilled at feeding their families, and historians have often studied the work of rural women on farms and in their homes. However, the stories of women who worked as agricultural researchers, producers, marketers, educators, and community organizers have not been told until now. Taking readers into the rural hinterlands of the rapidly urbanizing societies of the United States, Canada, Great Britain, and the Netherlands, the essays in Women in Agriculture tell the stories of a cadre of professional women who acted to bridge the growing rift between those who grew food and those who only consumed it. The contributors to Women in Agriculture examine how rural women's expertise was disseminated and how it was received. Through these essays, readers meet subversively lunching ladies in Ontario and African American home demonstration agents in Arkansas. The rural sociologist Emily Hoag made a place for women at the US Department of Agriculture as well as in agricultural research. Canadian rural reformer Madge Watt, British radio broadcaster Mabel Webb, and US ethnobotanists Mary Warren English and Frances Densmore developed new ways to share and preserve rural women's knowledge. These and the other women profiled here updated and expanded rural women's roles in shaping their communities and the broader society. Their stories broaden and complicate the history of agriculture in North America and Western Europe" -- From the publisher
