Rate this:
Although millions of women in the United States have worked on the land, With These Hands is the first history of their work. This collection begins with the agricultural work of Native American women, and traces to the eighties their experience as well as that of Euro-American, Hispanic, Black, and Asian women who have struggled to remain on the land. Rural women's complex lives emerge through letters, songs, fiction, official documents, journal entries, poetry, and oral history, documenting their love of the land, consciousness of racism and sexism, views of politics, and activities aimed at change.
