Cynthia Culver Prescott's Gender and Generation on the Far Western Frontier is an exceptionally good work. It is concise, well- written, and cogently argued.

—New Mexico Historical Review
Prescott's work begins to fill gaps in both Western and Gender history and should provide a starting point for further research and scholarship on the impact of generational shifts to gender roles in the West.
