內容簡介

Women Who Pioneered Oklahoma: Stories from the WPA Narratives
Culled from thousands of interviews conducted by the Works Progress Administration in 1936 and 1937, women tell of their experiences on the land runs and the Trail of Tears on their way to Oklahoma, their incredible efforts to make decent homes in a new land, their experiences with local and domestic animals, their fights with natural and man-made disasters, and their endurance of lawlessness both close by and amongst the powers that be in the legislatures and big companies. Baker (English, Northeastern State U.) and Henshaw (languages and literature, Northeastern State U.) wisely let the women speak for themselves, especially in the very moving chapter in which they reflect on what they ultimately did and did not do.
