Women of the West Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Women of the West

This boook had tons of pictures of women in the American Old West, 11 or 12 stories about Western women (from a great variety of backgrounds/ethnicities), and a chapter on minority women (i.e. Chinese immigrants). The minority women's stories are not written entirely in their own voices because there was not a lot written by minority women in the West.
