1.
Jackson K. Putnam, "Historical Fact and Literary Truth: The Problem of Authenticity in Western American Literature", Western American Literature, 15 ( May, 1980), 18-23, has common-sense directives on this subject. He does not, however, discuss re-discovered history.
2.
See Barbara Meldrum, "Images of Women in Western American Literature", The Midwest Quarterly, 17 (Spring, 1976), 252-267.
3.
Nancy Cott, The Bonds of Womanhood: Woman's Spbere in New England, 1780-1835 (New Haven: Yale University Press, 1979). Another important study of women's bonding is Carroll Smith-Rosenberg, "The Female World of Love and Ritual: Relations between Women in Nineteenth Century America", Signs, 2 (Autumn, 1975), 1-30. Similar work with westering women is found in Johnny Faragher and Christine Stansell, "Women and Their Families on the Overland Trail to California and Oregon, 1842- 1867", Feminist Studies, 2 ( 1975), 150-160; Johnny Faragher, Women and Men on the Overland Trail ( New York: Yale University Press, 1979); and Julie Roy Jeffrey, Frontier Women: The Transmississippi West, 1840-1880 ( New York: Hill and Wang, 1979).

The only published study of this phenomenon is Karen J. Blair, The Clubwoman as Feminist: True Womanhood Redefined, 1868-1914 ( New York: Holmes and Meier Publishing Inc., 1980).
