Mae West, wise-cracking vaudeville performer, was one of the most controversial figures of her era. Rarely, however, do people think of Mae West as a writer. In Three Plays By Mae West, Lillian Schlissel brings this underexplored part of West's career to the fore by offering for the first time in book form, three of the plays West wrote in the 1920s--Sex (1926), The Drag (1927) and Pleasure Man (1928). With an insightful introduction by Schlissel, this book offers a unique look into to the life and early career of this legendary stage and screen actr

Women's diaries of the westward journey by Lillian Schlissel( Recording )

More than a quarter of a million Americans crossed the continental United States between 1840 and 1870 in one of the greatest migrations of modern times. Frontiersmen have become part of the legend, but pioneering was in fact, a family matter, and the westering experiences of American women are central to an accurate picture of what life was like on the frontier
Mollie; the journal of Mollie Dorsey Sanford in Nebraska and Colorado Territories, 1857-1866 by Mollie Dorsey Sanford( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mollie is a vivid, high-spirited, and intensely feminine account of city people homesteading in the raw, new land west of the Missouri. More particularly, it is the story of Mollie herself - just turned eighteen when the Dorseys left Indianapolis for Nebraska Territory - of her reaction to the transplantation and to her new life which included rattlesnakes, blizzards, Indians, and the hardships of pioneer life." "Mollie describes her nearly three-year engagement to Byron Sanford, during which time she worked as a seamstress, teacher, and cook. Following her wedding Mollie's life took a new turn. Catching "Pike's Peak Fever," the Sanfords crossed the plains to Colorado to join others digging for gold. In mining camps and later, after the outbreak of the Civil War, in forts and army posts, Mollie's strength and endurance were tried to the uttermost, but she reports her trials and tribulations with the same gaiety, courage, and common sense that she displayed in living through them. Lillian Schlissel's introduction discusses the Sanfords' courtship, marriage, and their determination to trust in the possibilities of a companionate marriage."--Jacket

V. 1. The women who traveled west in covered wagons during the 1840s speak through these letters and diaries.

Still others make themselves heard, starting out from different places and recording details along the way, from the mundane to the soul-shattering and spirit-lifting

Foreign and female : immigrant women in America, 1840-1930 by Doris Weatherford( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: From 1840 to 1930 the United States received the greatest number of immigrants in its history. Of these immigrants, four of every ten were female. While much has been written about the American immigrant experience, the stories of immigrant women have remained largely untold. Doris Weatherford's Foreign and Female offers a vivid account of life in America for European female immigrants, many of whom were our grandmothers and great-grandmothers. Drawing from the letters and diaries of immigrant women, the author records what life was like for female newcomers to America: how they lived, what they ate, how they worked, how they married, and much, much more. Delving even further, Foreign and Female records the inner thoughts and concerns of these women, revealing their views on a range of subjects, including marriage, divorce, childbirth, and religion. Although the experiences of immigrant women differed from region to region and from situation to situation, Foreign and Female accurately describes what life was like for a variety of women - on the farm, in the factory, in the city, out West, and in the home
