A Voice of Her Own profiles fifty-two ranch women from Western Canada. With this book, the editors have brought to light a little-discussed aspect of ranching: the valuable contributions of women in an industry traditionally thought of as the domain of men. These women range in age from their teens to their nineties, and across three provinces, but they have in common a deep commitment to the land, to their families and communities, and to the ranching way of life. To them, the ranch means many things; it is a business, a home, and a place to raise their children. In their own words, they share their experiences, their successes, and their hardships and clearly demonstrate the important role women have played, and continue to play, in the history and economy of the ranching industry in Canada. With Contributions by: Heather Beierbach, Heidi Beierbach, Rose Bibby, Erin Bircham, Doris Bircham, Tammy Burgess, Doris Burton, Diane Catley, Catherine Chalack, Eileen McElroy, Clayton Carley Cooper, Helen Cyr, Virginia Delinte, Irene Edge, Doris Fenton, Judy Fenton, Lou Forsaith, Linda Froshaug, Sherri Grant, Mary Guenther, Sandy Hordenchuk, Ruth Hunt, Marilyn Jahnke, JoAnn Jones-Hole, Pat Kerr, Gayle Kozroski, Clare Kozroski, Hilda Krohn, Joan Lawrence, Christa Lawrence, Marjorie Linthicum, Jill Mastad, Heather McCuaig, Cheryl Morison, Cheryl Nixdorff, Delores Noreen, Thelma Poirier, Louise Popescul, Ruth Pritchard, Marilyn Ramsay, Robin Ramsay, Lyn Sauder, Ann Saville, Mary Jane Saville, Beryl Sibbald, Anne Slade, Anne Stevick, Alice Streeter, Kimberley Taylor, Susan Ames Vogelaar, Vernice Wearmouth, Edith Wearmouth, Dena Weiss, Pansy White-Brekhus, Rajanne Wills, Leta Wise, Robin Wolfater.
