Immigrant Women in the Settlement of Missouri

by Robyn Burnett and Ken Luebbering

Beginning with descriptions taken from diaries, letters and memoirs of women immigrants from many social classes and ethnic backgrounds, the authors describe the preparations for the journey, the perilous Atlantic crossing, and then the long and arduous trip from the port of entry to Missouri. With photographs and engaging narrative, the realities of life on the frontier and in the urban areas, childbirth, isolation and prejudice, as well as the joys and triumphs of immigrant women, are brought into focus.
