Women's Roles in the Texas Beef Cattle Industry

By Elizabeth Maret
Foreword by Liz Carpenter

“. . . a valuable contribution to women’s studies and the sociology of occupations.”—Contemporary Sociology

“. . .[Maret’s] greatest contribution may be the quantification of women’s involvement and comparison of data for farm women with that for ranch women . . . this is an impressive and ground-breaking work.”—Western Historical Quarterly

“Elizabeth Maret has blown big holes in the theory that it was bidness men who single-handedly tamed the West and built the Texas cattle industry. Women of the Range [is] a great addition to any Texan’s library.”—Wichita Falls Times Record News
