Pressestimmen"Few worlds are as male-dominated as the popularly imagined stereotype of the American West. Bakken, Farrington and a team of 58 academic contributors provide a fine corrective to the traditional rough-and-tumble view. . . . Although most of the entries are biographical, several extended essays examine regional experiences and such topics as the Air Force Academy and women, the conservation movement, jail matrons, Native-American protests, philanthropy and women in mining. Suggested readings are aimed at students, but this volume should earn a place on the shelf in high school, public and academic libraries."
