Roman Catholic sisters first traveled to the American West as providers of social services, education, and medical assistance. Anne Butler traces the ways in which sisters challenged and reconfigured contemporary ideas about women, work, religion, and the West; moreover, she demonstrates how religious life became a vehicle for increasing women's agency and power. --Publisher's description.
