Far from the popular image of the helpless, domesticated Victorian women, these pioneer wives were the equals of their husbands, and were completely necessary for their family’s survival. Needing courage, resourcefulness, intelligence and stamina, these women were remarkable for their strength, faith and tenacity.

Women: Voices from the Kansas Frontier by Joanna L. Stratton. Life on the frontier was not limited to the American west. Women in Australia during the 1800s also endured a similar lifestyle. Close your eyes for a minute and imagine being a woman in the mid 1800s. Your family has decided to try their luck in the west, looking for free land. These journeys across the frontier were far from glamorous - it was a life of arduous toil. The 'free settlers' were enticed by the opportunity to start a new life and they became a hardworking and influential part of colonial Australia.

I was amazed to read about the hardships these women faced and how determined they were to overcome and succeed. It was inspiring.

Anyone interested in genealogy or the history of the Midwest should find Pioneer Women very worthwhile reading. As a native Kansan of advanced age, I could relate to many of the stories and chapters. I could imagine my Mother, Father or Grandparents telling each event. I would think that living in Kansas would be a bonus for enjoyment from reading this book but I sincerely believe segments would appeal to everyone and the Book in full would be a very wise use of time and excellent entertainment.

This is a great book that everyone should read.. If you think you have it hard today read this and thank God how blessed you are to live in this day and time. Our pioneers had a rough life and they were tough tough people. Makes you wonder how we here in the United States today would do living the lifestyle that our pioneer ancestors did. This is a five star read.

History lovers will really enjoy this book. It is filled with interesting information and first-hand accounts of women who helped settle the Kansas Frontier. Most of us heard about the hardships people faced while traveling west in the 1800s, but reading about those hardships from the women who experienced them is especially enlightening.

I read this book years ago and wanted a copy to reread again. It is the only book I have laughed and cried through. The accounts of the pioneer women gives us a tiny idea of the life of those prairie women. I cannot begin to comprehend the hardships they faced, how they endured and the profound loneliness they experienced. It is a book for anyone who is interested in history of women of the prairie. I am glad I found it so I can have a copy again.

Very interesting history from a woman's life. My husband also has enjoyed reading this.
This book is an absolute delight to read. I had ancestors in Kansas during the time of this book so reading the women's recounting of their lives is very rewarding.
