The stories that shape us : contemporary women write about the West : an anthology ( Book )
3 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Over the past decade a rich chorus of women's voices has emerged from the West. The Stories That Shape Us is an extraordinary anthology of twenty-six personal essays by contemporary women writers, many being published here for the first time. Ranging widely across the cultures and the regions of the West, these women relate stories of family and community, of race and gender, of commitment and displacement, of grief and repair, of spirituality and connection to the earth. Against the story of the Winning of the West, of men in (and against) the natural world, these writers propose a revised narrative, one more appropriate to a world facing stark limits and ecological disaster. Their stories are not new, but until recently we have been unable to hear them. The voices in The Stories That Shape Us have been shaped by their particular regions and cultures, but they speak to the nation, and they demand attention because they tell us what we need in order to survive. The contributors to The Stories That Shape Us are as diverse as the regions they speak from. Some of them are well-established, even best-selling authors; others are new voices soon to be heard on the national scene. All are united by their passion to tell the truth about their land and their lives - to tell the stories that have shaped them and that can help shape us all
Graining the mare : the poetry of ranch women by Teresa editor Jordan ( Book )
1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This anthology includes a blending of nationally known authors such as Gretel Ehrlich, Linda Hasselstrom, Linda Hogan, and Luci Topahanso; performers at the annual Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko: Linda Hussa, Thelma Poirier, Gwen Petersen, Marie Smith, Myrt Wallis, Sue Wallis and others; and some relative newcomers. Through short biographical sketches, Teresa Jordan introduces us to the poets and sets the stage for our understanding the emotions of their hearts. Subjects of the poems are wide-ranging, and even though these women tell about events on the ranch, they are talking of experiences that are common to us all. They tell of loneliness and challenges, of sweet births and gut-wrenching deaths, of horses they have loved and livestock they have nurtured. They tell the stories of each other and draw from the strength of women who have gone it alone in the harsh seasons of life. Woven through the poetry is a self-determined sisterhood of voices, filled with humor, passion and faith

Riding the white horse home : a western family album by Teresa Jordan ( Book )
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
A memoir of three generations of a family whose story mirrors the history of the American West. Jordan tells about the women in her family, some shoehorned into the only lives they could imagine, others finding ways to create lives they wanted. Above all, this is the story of a community disappearing--a tale that has unfolded in hundreds of other rural places. Photographs
