" From Gone with the Wind to Designing Women, images in film and fiction tend to obscure the diversity of American women below the Mason-Dixon line. In a work that lays bare many myths and stereotypes, Margaret Ripley Wolfe offers the first professional synthesis of southern women's experiences across the centuries. In telling their stories, she considers many lives-those of Native-American, African American, and white women from the tidewater and Appalachia to the Gulf Coastal Plain and Mississippi Delta, women whose varied economic and social circumstances resist simple explanations. Here are stories of wives, mothers, pioneers, soldiers, suffragists, politicians, and activists-women with ambition, grit and endurance.
