Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"This book describes the challenging life of the Kansas pioneers, with an emphasis on the lives of the women. It covers the time period from 1854, when the territory was opened to settlement, until 1912 when women's suffrage was granted by an amendment to the state constitution. The source material was collected in the 1920's by the author's great-grandmother, Lilla Day Monroe. She gathered hundreds of reminiscences from women in Kansas but did not live to write the book herself. Joanna Stratton mentions some of the limitations of the material, among them the fact that the people surveyed did not include any social outcasts, such as dance hall girls or Indian women. Even though the resultant picture is incomplete, these firsthand accounts add interesting detail to our understanding of frontier life." Reviewed by Robert Jackson, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
