This book adds to a neglected area of research, rural women. Through the use of reminiscence, census data, agricultural surveys, interviews, and observations during a year of residency in a rural Iowa county, Deborah Fink examines women's experience as members of a rural social system in which farming has been, until recently, considered a viable and valued opportunity, albeit a gender restricted occupation.
