Review:

...very important...should be read by all students interested in American Indian cultures and in women studies, lower-division undergraduate and up.>>>> (Choice)

...offers readers both an introduction to a much neglected dimension of Plains Indian culture and 'more accurate and sophisticated explanations of female role, status and identity'... a stimulating, argumentative book and not everyone will agree with all the conclusions drawn by its authors. Nevertheless, those interested in Plains Indian culture should take time to read it.>>> (North Dakota History: Journal Of The Northern Plains)

This collection of 10 well-documented essays succeeds admirably in providing a solid foundation for and interesting perspectives on the study of Plains Indian women.>>>> (Plains Anthropologist)
