Daughters of Dakota (Vol. I)

$9.75

The Daughters of Dakota books tell a new story of cooperation between Indians and settlers. It traces a panorama of white settlement that began with horse-and-buggy travel into the Yankton area in the 1860′s and 1870′s, continued the next decade with “immigrant cars” bringing homesteaders by train to the rich wheat lands east of the river, and ended with automobiles carrying the possessions of ranchers to the west river country after the turn of the century. The range of stories is amazing. White women and Black, Native American, rich and poor, Swedish and Norwegian, German-Russian, Jewish. Town women who unpacked their china and immediately began having teas. Women who went mad with loneliness isolated on the prairies. Women who came with their husbands, parents, sisters, children, friends, and by themselves, proving up and become landowners in their own right. There are career women, missionaries, and the first female baseball umpire, perhaps in the world.
