To discover how women constructed their own mythology of the West, Kolodny examines the evidence of three generations of women's writing about the frontier. She finds that, although the American frontiersman imagined the wilderness as virgin land, an unspoiled Eve to be taken, the pioneer woman at his side dreamed more modestly of a garden to be cultivated. Both intellectual and cultural history, this volume continues Kolodny's study of frontier mythology begun inThe Lay of the Land.Kolodny, Annette is the author of 'Land Before Her Fantasy and Experience of the American Frontiers, 1630-1860', published 1984 under ISBN 9780807841112 and ISBN 0807841110.
