“A highly educational and enlightening resource, the Encyclopedia of Women in the American West is a core recommendation for academic and public library American Western History Studies and Women’s Studies reference collections, as well as an invaluable resource for writers and non-specialist general readers with an interest in studying women’s experiences and contributions to American society and culture.”
“This is the first encyclopedia to focus on this neglected group. . . . There is a clear need for this encyclopedia . . . recommended for academic and public libraries and all libraries with a special interest in the western region and women’s studies.”
"This is a sound purchase for college and university libraries with women's studies or American West programs as well as for large public libraries."
"Few worlds are as male-dominated as the popularly imagined stereotype of the American West. Bakken, Farrington and a team of 58 academic contributors provide a fine corrective to the traditional rough-and-tumble view. . . . Although most of the entries are biographical, several extended essays examine regional experiences and such topics as the Air Force Academy and women, the conservation movement, jail matrons, Native-American protests, philanthropy and women in mining.
