This anthology is a welcome addition to the growing body of literature concerning the history of women in the United States and particularly the history of women in the American West. Its essays, which address the issues of woman suffrage, women’s work, race and ethnicity, and the arts.. begin to remedy the long—time dearth of knowledge about women in the Pacific Northwest.
