        Although many women novelists do write about "big public subjects" and many male novelists write about "intimate life", Pollitt suggests, "we emphasise different elements in similar books . In Writing the Trail, Deborah Lawrence’s thoughtfully rendered portraits of five westering women poignantly depict the dynamic interplay between traveler and frontier lands. In a clear, accessible style, Lawrence casts these compelling, memorable narratives and shows us the West from a decidedly woman’s perspective.”Susan Imbarrato.

Writing the Trail continues in this vein by providing a comparative literary analysis of five frontier narrativesSusan Magoffin’s Down the Santa Fe Trail and into Mexico, Sarah Royce’s.

I n the American imagination, the rugged, vast landscapes of the West are dotted with solitary men on horseback—cowboys, outlaws, sheriffs. But the frontier was also home to women. Frontiers has decided to change its cover with each issue, using the publication as an opportu- nity to showcase work by a variety of women artists and photographers.

Frontiers is currently inviting submissions in all areas of women’s, feminist, and gender particular, we seek to publish work that continues the tradition of examining relationships among place/space, region, and topics of longstanding concern to feminist scholars that are complexly intersectional, interdisciplinary, and deeply theoretical.

“Covered Wagon Women” is a fascinating non-fiction account of fourteen pioneer women traveling west in the ’s. The book was edited and compiled by historian Kenneth L. Holmes. It is a remarkable book in that it consists of primary source, unedited diary entries, letters and other correspondence.

The editor left the women’s narratives unedited as. The essays collected in Women Writing Women: The Frontiers Reader weave together theoretical, personal, and material frameworks feminist scholars use to write about their lives and the lives of other women.

The essays, organized centrifugally ("Writing the Self" to "Writing Women from a Distance"), were selected by the editors from essays published originally in Frontiers: A Journal of Women.
