This is an impressive addition to the stock of women's private writing that has been brought to light since feminists began reexamining the meaning of "literature" and "history." The writer taught English at Indiana University before marrying a disabled veteran of the Spanish-American War and going off to homestead in Wyoming. Her letters home tell about building a house, doing farm labor (it was cheaper to pay a schoolgirl for inside chores so she could be "hired man"), forming a rural cooperative, and joining the women's clubs that built friendships and a community. She ran for public office and was a friend of Wyoming's governor Nellie Ross. The style is detailed, polished, and sometimes witty; Hendricks is not introspective but likes to tell a good story.
