Updated: May 17, 2019

School Women of the Prairies and Plains Author: Mary Hurlbut Cordier 2nd Paperbound printing, © 1998 ISBN 0-8263-1774-X

This lively book focuses on the women responsible for educating prairie children. In large part they were natives of the region, often teen-aged girls away from home for the first time. Teaching under difficult circumstances, school women struggled to meet their students' needs and also used all the means at their disposal—summer institutes, normal schools, and even programs by mail—to upgrade their own educational credentials.
