about

This book is a study of seven autobiographies by women who defied the domestic ideology of nineteenth-century America by serving as itinerant preachers. Literally and culturally homeless, all of them used their autobiographies to construct, from an array of materials, plausible identities aswomen and Christians in an age that found them hard to understand.

Editorial Reviews

"The strength of this book ... is Grammer's ability to contextualize her authors as historical actors and to ground her observations in the realities that emerge when race, gender, and religion intersect. Because she does so, her work adds a fresh dimension to the on-going discussion ofdomesticity and highlights how women's spiritual authority and women's marginality clashed in nineteenth-century evangelical America."-- American Historical Review
