One Step Over the Line by Elizabeth Jameson

Book Description

This eclectic and carefully organized range of essays-from women's history and settler societies to colonialism and borderlands studies-is the first collection of comparative and transnational work on women in the Canadian and U.S. Wests. It explores, expands, and advances the aspects of women's history that cross national borders. Out of the talks presented at the 2002 "Unsettled Pasts: Reconceiving the West through Women's History," Elizabeth Jameson and Sheila McManus have edited a foundational text for pioneering scholars of this emergent, interdisciplinary field.

Marietta Wetherill by Elizabeth Jameson Marietta Wetherill, Hardback (September 1997)

First published in 1992, this is a first-hand account of life at a famous archaeological ruin. Married to Richard Wetherill, the rancher and amateur archaeologist who ran a trading post in Chaco Canyon from 1896 until 1910, Marietta Wetherill got to know her Navajo neighbours as intimately as an Anglo could.

Land in Her Own Name by Elizabeth Jameson Land in Her Own Name, Paperback (September 1996)

Many women homesteaded across North Dakota in the late-19th and early-20th centuries. This work records their experiences as revealed in interviews with surviving homesteaders, land records, letters and diaries. They tell of locating a claim, building a shelter and living on the prairie.

Rachel Calof's Story by Elizabeth Jameson Rachel Calof's Story, Paperback (June 1995)

Rachel Bella Calof defies the nostalgia of the cheerful oLittle House on the PrairieO homestead; her story is instead one of real families handling daily stresses, competing needs, and interpersonal accommodations.
