Social Class in the Writings of Mary Hallock Foote (Western Literature Series)

This book presents a new look at the writings of a woman in the frontier West. Mary Hallock Foote (1847-1938) was one of the most popular female writers of her generation, and one of the first women to make a living producing fiction about the West. Born to a middle-class Upstate New York family, she early made a name for herself as a writer and illustrator of magazines and books.
