Land in Her Own Name: Women as Homesteaders in North Dakota by H. Elaine Lindgren
These women's accounts tell of locating a claim, erecting a shelter, and living on the prairie. Their ethnic backgrounds include Yankee, Scandinavian, German, German-Russian, African-American, Jewish, and Lebanese. Some were barely twenty-one, while others had reached their sixties. This book situates the homesteading experience for women within the larger context of Western history.
