Montana Women Homesteaders: A Field of One’s Own

Edited by Sarah Carter

In Montana Women Homesteaders: A Field of One’s Own, Sarah Carter introduces the voices and images of women who filed on 160- or 320-acre homestead plots in Montana. Single, widowed, divorced, or deserted, women varied in ages, educational levels, and ethnic backgrounds, but all “proved up” on their homesteads. In published accounts, scrapbooks, personal reminiscences, and photographs, the women recorded their remarkable journeys.
