This volume is a collection of over 100 primary sources in women's history that reveals the diversity of women's experience from the colonial era through the 19th century. The documents range from the familiar to the unusual. Collectively, they evoke interest, inspire reflection, and invite commentary from readers. This volume can stand alone, or it can be used in combination with Susan Ware's MODERN AMERICAN WOMEN, 1890 TO THE PRESENT.

Its a shame that in many history classes, half of the human experience is virtually ignored. This is even more apparent in terms of anthologies of documents. Nancy Woloch has made an outstanding contribution in correcting this in her _Early American Women_.
The book is marvelous in the wide variety of documents it contains. There is census data from Spanish California, accounts of Iroquois women in government, oral histories of slaves (and mistresses), and some really fabulous material on the 19th century sufferage movement. The voices of women from all social classes can be heard here, from the colonial era to the Progressive period. It is very well rounded, and I will certainly be including it as a part of my curriculum.
The only short-coming I find in the book is its lack of statistical and visual documents. With this minor criticism said, I highly recommend this book to educators, especially those in the discipline of history.

This book was for one of my classes and really like, good book and a good price. I am happy with my product
  • Bremar
Had to buy this for a class, literally worst class ever, but at least this book served its purpose... so 5 stars. Thanks!
  • Lavivan
This book arrived very quickly, well before the last possible arrival date. However, it has many more highlight markings and writing in it than I had expected. All text is still readable, it's just somewhat distracting.

A wealth of resources for any study on American History from a female perspective. Perhaps one day our history will be such that such distinctions are unnecessary, but this work is an important and useful compilation of notable women, mainly of the 19th century, but not exclusively.
  • Anayaron
I read this book for my first women's studies course in college. The documents presented here provide interesting illustrations of women's lives and work and of ideas and conventions about women's roles in American society. It is a valuable resource for academics and teachers, and an interesting read for everyone else.
its a kindle book for me and is good
