This is a collection of essays that include biographical sketches and writings from women of all walks of life who helped bring about the Americanisation of the New Mexico Territory, from the Mexican War until statehood in 1912. These women were wives of missionaries, soldiers and military officers, and government officials who came from the eastern part of the United States. For this edition, Cheryl Foote has provided a new Introduction, which highlights information uncovered since the book's original publication in 1990.

MEDIA REVIEWS
""Women of the New Mexican Frontier" provides a unique glimpse into Anglo-American women's history in New Mexico during the last half of the 19th century."
"Based on careful research, "Women of the New Mexico Frontier" brings to our attention the lives and work of obscure but nevertheless significant women. For the first time, the lives of Anglo women from the Eastern United States are examined vis--vis the Americanization of New Mexico Territory."
"Women in historical nonfiction have finally gained a permanent place in the publishing world. Foote's book reveals the stories of army wives, teachers and missionaries. She successfully weaves together these women with a common thread of character. . A departure from traditional New Mexico history, this is a must read."
