This book presents the work of more than 150 women artists who live or once lived west of the Mississippi River. The first half of the book consists of fifteen interpretive essays examining the work and concerns of 19th and 20th century artists working in a broad range of media (including photography, quiltmaking, painting, printmaking, clay art, sculpture, digital art and more). Concepts of community, identity, spirituality, and locality are explored in interdisciplinary contexts. Histories and critical reappraisals of gendered representations of the American West form the backbone of these essays.
