Changing Interpretation of Role of Women Pioneers Bibliography


Query From Patricia Miller millers_npc@sprynet.com 04 Oct 1998

I am working on an historiographic essay on the changing interpretations of the role of women in the pioneer settlement of the American West, since 1970. Does anyone have any suggestions for sources, both journal articles and books?
