Ethel Waxham's letters and journals provide a rich portrait of the American West of the early 1900s and of the limitations facing educated women of that period. The first-person sources create a historical context for issues still pertinent to women facing problems of employment, education, and social change. John McPhee excerpted portions of Waxham's journals in Rising From the Plains. Lady's Choice presents the complete journal and Waxham's extensive correspondence, revealing her decision in 1905 to accept a teaching job at a one-room school in Wyoming, her five-year courtship by John Love, and her attempts, as well as those of her college-educated friends, to pursue higher education and a career.
