Megan Marshall, author of The Peabody Sisters: Three Women Who Ignited American Romanticism
“Using an impressive range of source material and offering thought-provoking discussion questions, Carol Faulkner’s documentary reader reflects the diversity of women’s experiences and calls attention to the centrality of women in American history.”
Anya Jabour, editor of Major Problems in the History of American Families and Children and author of Topsy-Turvy: How the Civil War Turned the World Upside Down for Southern Children.
“By selecting documents that range from the English colonies to French Louisiana and Spanish New Mexico, Carol Faulkner offers readers a fascinating array of early American women's lives: Indian and African American women; Catholic and Protestant women; plebian, middling, and elite women; and girls as well as adult women. Her brisk introduction raises provocative questions about women's varied roles in early America, and encourages students to see their experiences as foundational to American history.”
