Through letters written by one family in post-Reconstruction Texas, Myers shows what life was like in this part of the Old West, from a feminie perspective. The detailed letter of joy and struggle on the frontier remind us, Myers points out, that "broad historical events ...are made up of myriad ordinary lives."
Lois E Myers is Associate Director of the Baylor Institute for Oral History and Secretary of the Texas Oral History Association.
