Book Review
Jill Ker Conway (The Road from Coorain ) edits this sterling selection of autobiographical excerpts by 25 American women. Among them are artists, scientists, doctors, writers, and reformers, all well chosen though not necessarily well known. Physician Anne Walter Fearn writes of decades dispensing Western medicine in China and struggling with her husband, a God-fearing medical missionary who was "born to give orders just as definitely as I was born not to take them." The heart-rending narrative of former slave Harriet Ann Jacob, who tells of abortive and finally successful attempts to free herself and her children segues into Maya Angelou's more widely read contemporary account of doggedly soliciting sex as a teen uncertain of her sexual identity and hoping to be ushered into "that strange and exotic...

From Publishers Weekly
Although she was the prolific author of poetry, short stories, criticism and 20 novels (including the 1942 Pulitzer Prize winner, In This Our Life), Virginia-born Glasgow (1872-1945) feared rightly that in time she would be considered merely a regional writer or a minor novelist of manners. In this solidly documented, sympathetic portrayal of a famously secretive woman, Goodman (Edith Wharton's Inner Circle) seeks to revive Glasgow's reputation as a writer and important influence on fellow Southerners Robert Penn Warren, Eudora Welty and William Faulkner. Having set herself the task of writing a social history of her state, Glasgow began with the publication of her first novel at the age of 24. She broke with the Southern tradition of romanticizing the past, and instead wrote realistic descriptions of the rise of...

Book Description
1902. Glasgow's realistic fiction novels often showed the female characters as stronger than the male characters. It was this new type of Southern fiction that made Ellen Glasgow one of the major writers of her time. The vantage point from which most of her nineteen novels were written was her native home of Richmond, Virginia. She received the Pulitzer prize in 1942. The Battle Ground is the earliest of a series of novels which Glasgow hoped might become in time a complete social history of Virginia since the Civil War. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
