Annotation A broad sampling of contemporary articles, letters, poems, and essays brings to life the period between the U.S. Civil War and the turn of the twentieth century, a time of great social upheaval in the United States. Women were torn between the urban battle for women's rights and the traditional role of homemaker, mother, and helper that was still the norm in rural areas. The source materials recognize the hardships that characterized the lives of women of the time while idealizing the vision of the farmer's wife.
