Abstract:

Memoirs of a rural communist -- "Tillie" : German farm women -- Rozalija : Lithuanian farm woman -- Recovering her story : learning the history of farm women -- New Mexico farm women, 1900-1940 -- Women in the hop harvest from New York to Washington (with Susan Armitage) -- Southwest monuments of the Salinas -- Native American women and agriculture : a Seneca case study -- Rise up like wheat : plantation women in Maryland -- Butter-making and economic development in mid-Atlantic America, 1750-1850 -- Cloth, butter, and boarders : women's household production for the market -- On their own : women on the Wisconsin frontier -- Crossing ethnic barriers in the southwest : women's agricultural extension education, 1914-1940 -- Keeping down on the farm : farm women in farm crisis -- "You may depend she does not eat much idle bread" : mid-Atlantic farm women and their historians -- The role of farm women in American history : areas for additional research.

This collection of essays by a well-known American historian begins with personal accounts of the author's own experiences on a farm commune in the 1970s and those of her German immigrant grandmother in Wisconsin in the early 1900s. Other essays draw on oral history, iconography, and material culture to expand our knowledge of previously invisible women. Essays on Seneca women in New York, black women in Maryland, and Pueblo and Hispanic women in the Southwest document strategies used by diverse rural women to survive difficult transitions. The collection concludes with a look at modern attempts to retain family farms and a survey of new directions for research. Promise to the Land offers insight into a neglected area of American culture and will be invaluable to scholars and students of rural sociology, history, and women's studies -- Book jacket.
