har ris Reviews The only downside to this study is that Baym's ambitious organization of chapters is somewhat disruptive in parts. Because she attends to theme while also focusing on chronology, her discussion of certain authors (Mollie Moore Davis and Gertrude Atherton, for example) are split up, which can be somewhat distracting, but this is certainly a small price to pay for such a rich resource of cultural and literary history. This clearly written, straightforward conspectus is like no other book in its field through its careful and meticulous survey of women writers who at times accepted domestic responsibilities and at others became significant agents of change. Baym is clear in noting that she had to sacrifice depth for breadth in order to accommodate the many women writers she includes in her survey, no small task considering the amount of research and thought that went into this book. But this resource is no mere series of plot summaries. It is so much more. Women Writers of the American West is a must have for scholars and nonscholars alike who know the West was won, but, as Baym assuredly argues, certainly not lost.
