Women's voices from the western frontier
WOMEN'S VOICES FROM THE WESTERN FRONTIER continues the evocative tone of the author's previous book, WOMEN'S VOICES FROM THE OREGON TRAIL. Sweeping yet intimate, Susan G. Butruille's book gives voice to the women of the many western frontiers through their journals, stories, songs & recipes. Here are strung-together moments of everydayness, punctuated by a Pueblo woman's corn grinding song, a Hispanic wedding feast & horseback rides across the prairie, hair flying free. 6X9 paper, illustrations, 350 pages, $16.95.
