Unsettling the West Eliza Farnham & Geor Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cultural Writing. Always outspoken, often outrageous, and fervent on behalf of their cause — prison reform, women's rights, Spiritualism, phrenology, abolitionism, suffrage — these admirable idealists, Eliza Farnham and Georgiana Bruce, believed not only in the perfectibility of humankind, but devoutly in their personal responsibility to point the way. Quoting extensively from their books and articles, author JoAnn Levy has assembled a biographic gem, an entertaining and groundbreaking work.

Book News Annotation:

Having already been involved in reform activities on the East Coast, lifelong friends Eliza Farnham and Georgiana Bruce Kirby arrived in California during the Gold Rush still working for their shared causes of prison reform, women's rights, and suffrage, and abolitionism, among others; "unsettling" the frontier towns and cities with their forthright advocacy. Largely reliant on Farnham and Kirby's own writings, this dual biography chronicles their activities and their friendship.
Annotation 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Two friends, both independent and opinionated, shake up the masculine West.
