These women were wives of missionaries, soldiers and military officers, and government officials who came from the eastern part of the United States. For this edition, Cheryl Foote has provided a new Introduction, which highlights information uncovered since the book's original publication in 1990. "Throughout, Foote does not shy away from sensitive topics, including alcoholism, domestic violence, and prostitution. . . .

Bracken Professor Emeritus of History, Ball State University, Muncie, Indiana "Battered wives, Presbyterian missionaries, army laundresses--these are the people that Cheryl Foote presents in Women of the New Mexico Frontier.

For example, a particular strength of this book is the new dimension it brings to our understanding of army women."--The Journal of Arizona History "Foote's book is based on careful research, and it brings to our attention the lives and work of obscure but nonetheless significant women."--The Western Historical Quarterly

    The author is going for the ‘noble woman in a savage land’ here and it makes for one hell of a dull read. The book is like an afterschool special—completely stripped of any raw emotion or circumstances that might make it interesting. There are some fantastic stories of women in the territories and some incredible events. Every time I read pabulum like this I want sit down and write my own damn book.

    Women of the New Mexican Frontier was an assigned book for my HIST 260 (History of New Mexico) class. This was an intersting book about Anglo-American women who came to New Mexico while it was a territory of the United States. It is sad though, that there we were not assigned a book to read about Native or Hispanic women.

    Nothing grand about this book. I just liked the history of the New Mexico and Arizona Territories.
