The women's West by Susan H Armitage( Book )

15 editions published between 1987 and 2003 in English and held by 1,969 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The American West looms large in popular imagination: a place where men were rugged and independent, violent and courageous. In this mythic West, all the men were white, and the women were largely absent. The few female actors played supporting roles around the edges of the drama. Molded by the Victorian Cult of True Womanhood, they were passive, dependent, reluctant, and out of place. Men "won" the West. Women, against their better judgement, followed them to this "newly discovered" place and tried to re-create the amenities of the urban East. Or so the myth goes. The Women's West challenges this picture as racist, sexist, and romantic, and rejects the customary emphasis of traditional western history on the nineteenth-century frontier discovered and defined by Anglo men. In its place, The Women's West begins the construction of a new western history as complex and varied as the people who lived it. This collection of twenty-one articles creates a multidimensional portrait of western women. The pioneer women presented here were actors in their own lives, not passive participants in their husbands' ventures. They were hardy seekers who came west, sometimes alone, in search of jobs, freedom, or land to homestead. They were political activists who worked tirelessly to win the right to vote and to hold political office. They adapted in practical ways to their own and their families' economic and personal needs in a new environment

A valuable introduction to the rapidly changing field of western history, Writing the Range explains clearly how race, class, and culture are constructed and connected.

Women writing women : the Frontiers reader by Karen Weathermon( )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By merging scholarly writing with personal life stories, Women Writing Women creates a new setting for communicating the unique experiences of women.

So much to be done : women settlers on the mining and ranching frontier( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 1,146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The genuine creative achievements of nineteenth-century Western women have often been obscured by sentimental tributes to their devotion and diligence, while men are praised as pathfinders, entrepreneurs, and community builders. But these nineteen narratives, by women of diverse status and background, reveal women's involvement in every aspect of settlement. Their part in making hard decisions, producing essential income, and developing new communities was as important as their flexibility, humor, and sense of adventure. This collection describes the experiences of pioneer women responding in individual ways to the challenge of frontier hardships.--From publisher description
Speaking history : oral histories of the American past, 1865-present by Susan H Armitage( Book )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume of selected oral histories features the voices of Americans who lived through some of the most critical events shaping the nation's history since the Civil War. This first-of-a-kind compilation allows students, scholars, and other readers to explore the connections and disconnections between individual stories and broader historical themes by understanding how history plays out in individual lives. Comprised of oral history interviews drawn from some of the country's major collections, Speaking History presents a remarkable array of diverse American voices. Included here are fascinating, often moving accounts of everything from slavery to protest movements, world wars to work and leisure, forming a detailed mosaic of American life in the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Supplemented with valuable historical context, this book demonstrates how oral history interviews can bring the past to life by linking individual experiences to larger historical narratives
Shaping the public good : women making history in the Pacific Northwest by Susan H Armitage( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Carved into a rock overlooking the Columbia River stands the arresting image of Tsagaglalal, or "She Who Watches," an ancient female chief. As the Wishram people recount, when men replaced women in positions of power, Tsagaglalal was turned to stone by Coyote so that she could forever guide her community and guard its development. Using the story of She Who Watches as her guide, Armitage shows that even though women were barred from positions of public authority until recently, they have always worked quietly and informally to assure the stability and security of their families and communities. Women's community-building and cooperative skills have been decisive in developing the societies of the Pacific Northwest--Washington, Oregon, Idaho, western Montana, and British Columbia. Like She Who Watches, women have never been mere observers, but watchful guardians and active shapers of the public good. Drawing on her three decades of research and teaching and based on hundreds of secondary sources, Armitage's account explores the varied ways in which, beginning in the earliest times and continuing to the present, women of all races and ethnicities have made the history of our region. An accessible introduction for general readers and scholars alike, Shaping the Public Good restores a missing piece of Pacific Northwest history by demonstrating the part that women--"the famous, the forgotten, and all the women in between"--Have always played in establishing their families and building communities."--
