Staking Her Claim: Women Homesteading the West
By Marcia Meredith Hensley. Softcover, 304 pages.
Instead of talking about the rights of women, these frontier women grabbed the opportunity to become landowners by homesteading in the still wild west of the early 1900s. Here they tell their stories in their own words-through letters and articles of the time-of adventure, independence, foolhardiness, failure, and freedom.
