“Primarily descriptive, this study raises issues of gender, ethnicity, and class which should stimulate further research. . . . Rural sociologists and historians alike will find Maret’s study a valuable reference and a spur to further research.”        —Southwestern Historical Quarterly

“. . . 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
