“A beautiful ethnographic work. Schaefer deftly relates mythology, cosmology, family life, and economics within the spiritual practice and mechanics of weaving. There is clearly a preservation ethos underlying Schaefer’s work, yet her depiction is not mournful, it is celebratory.”—Ethnohistory

The photographs taken by Charlotte T. McGraw, the official Women’s Army Corps photographer during World War II, offer the single most comprehensive visual record of the approximately 140,000 women who served in the U.S. Army during the war.
The Lincoln County War catapulted Susan McSween and a young cowboy named Henry McCarty, alias Billy the Kid, into the history books. As a woman in a man’s story, Susan McSween has been all but ignored. This is the first book to place her in a larger context.
Two powerful autobiographical novels of being a Jewish woman in Mexico, dealing with her parents' dictates, and her husband's and family's expectations. The only constant in her life is a need to find her own way.
