Settlement on the Oklahoma frontier, which began as abruptly as a pistol shot on a starting line, produced a collision of cultures. Women of Oklahoma, 1890-1920, uses primary sources, particularly diaries and letters, to tell the stories of white, black, and Native American women who crossed racial and cultural barriers to work together, first in domestic concerns and later in community and national affairs. The personal stories of pioneering Oklahoma women cross boundaries of race and class; their attitudes and concerns transcend time and place.
