By: Butler,Anne M.
Price: $21.95

Utah State University Press,1996
Uncommon Common Women will broaden and enrich the general reader's understanding of women's lives during the western emigration era. The authors are not interested in promoting the stereotypes of the West--the schoolmarm and the dance hall girl--but rather focusing on the forgotten roles and gritty realities of these women's lives during an often brutally difficult time. This multi-genre piece combines historical narrative with storytelling and photographs, making it a rich and rewarding book with many images and many voices. Paperback,138 pages.
