Overview of A Voice of Her Own

A Voice of Her Own profiles fifty-two ranch women from Western Canada. With this book, the editors have brought to light a little-discussed aspect of ranching: the valuable contributions of women in an industry traditionally thought of as the domain of men. These women range in age from their teens to their nineties, and across three provinces, but they have in common a deep commitment to the land, to their families and communities, and to the ranching way of life. To them, the ranch means many things; it is a business, a home, and a place to raise their children. In their own words, they share their experiences, their successes, and their hardships and clearly demonstrate the important role women have played, and continue to play, in the history and economy of the ranching industry in Canada.
