Synopsis

Sixty-four stories and sketches by fourteen writers are brought together in this groundbreaking anthology to trace a tradition of women's writing in America. Crossing boundaries of region and ethnicity, these works are by writers popular in their time but neglected in the twentieth century. In American Women Regionalists readers will find writing that charts the imagination and talent of some of our most compelling voices.



Included in the collection are works by New Englanders Mary E. Wilkins Freeman and Sarah Orne Jewett, Tennessean Mary Noailles Murfree, New Orleans writers Kate Chopin and Alice Dunbar-Nelson, Native American Zitkala-Sa, and Western writers Sui Sin Far and Mary Austin, among others. Together these writers enable readers to reconstruct a women's tradition of sketches and short stories from Harriet Beecher Stowe to Willa Cather.



To help contextualize the stories and sketches, Pryse and Fetterley provide a general introduction, biographical/critical headnotes, and bibliographies for further reading.
