Book Signing for TU English Alum
Monday, May 04, 2009
Instead of talking about women’s rights, these frontier women grabbed the opportunity to become landowners by homesteading in the still wild west of the early 1900s.
TU Alum, Marcia Meredith Hensely (BA English and MA), will be at Steve's Sundries, 2800 South Harvard on Saturday, May 9th, to sign her new book, Staking Her Claim: Women Homesteading the West
. The publication is a new nonfiction from High Plains press.
"Instead of talking about women's rights, these frontier women claimed theirs by homesteading in the still wild west of the early 1900's. Here single women homesteaders tell their stories in their own words - through memoirs, letters, oral histories, and articles of the time-of adventure, independence, risk, failure, and freedom."
