    • Given the time in which it was written 1982 it is an early and important book bringing awareness to the women of the west At the time there was only a dim idea, full of myth and lacking in depth, of the women who came West This is where the new history of the west began, which brings us to today s better understanding of the multi ethnic tapestry that was the Western US, the frontier, from 1500 forward.


    • This book is awful Myres is a horrible and monotonous writer In an effort to pull away from the myths created by social historians in the 1980s, Myres manages to make the experience of women in the west seem tedious and boring She presents both sides and, as a result, presents no argument Some like it, some didn t Some loved being married, some didn t Some like Indians, some didn t, etc Every paragraph starts with phrases like, just as The only argument that she upholds is that of Frederick Jack [...]


    • A solid 3.5 stars from me, were such a thing possible Some good information pulled together in a way that I d not seen it before and definitely worth a read I also appreciated her efforts to bring the voices of Native American and Latina women, which help round out this history of westward expansion I can t say that all of her analysis overwhelmed me and portions of the book are fairly dry, but this is still a decent introduction to the topic and worth tracking down.


    • No can t finish it This nutty professor has done a grave disservice to the victims of the frontier and is dangerous to the preservation of American history No stars
