This has been sitting on my wife’s book shelf for several years. She handed it to me when she heard me say I was enjoying the Colorado Women Climbers book. Guess it is time to check it out! ;-)
Book Description from Amazon:
In Montana Women Homesteaders: A Field of One's Own, author and historian Sarah Carter introduces the voices and images of women who filed on 160- or 320-acre homestead plots in Montana.
Single, widowed, divorced, or deserted, women varied in ages, educational levels, and ethnic backgrounds, but all proved up on their homesteads.
In published accounts, scrapbooks, personal reminiscences, and photographs, the women recorded their remarkable journeys.
Carter reveals inspiring stories filled with joy, tragedy, and redemption. Silver medal, WILLA Literary Awards, scholarly nonfiction, 2010
