who were true heroines, brave, resolute and devoted - they saw and experienced harsh living conditions and events that make the reader feel the deepest respect for them.Woman on the American Frontier is not only a book that stirs powerful emotions - it is also the accurate document of an era, a book that educates the reader about what life used to be like in the beginnings, how people shared the scarce resources they possessed and how the progress from the Atlantic towards the Pacific took place. The term American Frontier denotes the westward progress started by English colonists in the 17th century, a period that ended at the beginning of the 20th century with the last territories being admitted to the United States in 1912.In film and fiction, the history of the American Frontier is often mythicized and enriched with stories of the Wild West, while in literature it is mainly represented in romantic novels featuring tough, heroic figures, cruel-minded evil characters and a world that is ruled by men. There are actually very few writings about the period that provide realistic accounts of what life was like back then. William Worthington Fowler's Woman on the American Frontier is, by all means, one of them.
