Women and Western American Literature

The nineteenth-century spelling of "Pike's Peak" is retained where it is appropriate.
1.
Scholarly interest in women in the nineteenth century has been particularly intense. Studies that I have found especially helpful are now classics and include Barbara Welter "The Cult of True Womanood: 18201860", American Quarterly, 18 ( 1966), 151-174; Gerda Lerner "The Lady and The Mill Girl: Changes in the Status of Women in the Age of Jackson, 1800-1840", Mid-Continent American Studies Journal, 10 ( 1969), 5-14; Carroll Smith- Rosenberg "The Female World of Love and Ritual: Relations Between Women in Nineteenth Century America", Signs, 1 ( Autumn, 1975), 1-29; Johnny Faragher and Christine Stansell "Women and Their Families on the Overland Trail To California and Oregon, 1842-1867", Feminist Studies, 2 ( 1975), 150-166, and Eleanor Flexner A Century of Struggle: The Women's Rights Movement in the U. S. ( Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 1969). There is less research available on the woman's experience of the westward movement, but Frontier Women: The TransMississippi West, 1840-1880, by Julie Roy Jeffrey ( New York: Hill and Wang, 1979) is valuable and comprehensive as, from another perspective, is Women and Men on the Overland Trail, by John Mack Faragher ( New Haven: Yale University Press, 1979).
2.
There is no full-length biography of Julia Archibald Holmes, although a brief life history, not complete, is added to her article reprinted in A Bloomer Girl On Pike's Peak-1858, edited by Agnes Wright Spring (Denver: Denver Public Library, 1949). The Holmes's years after Pikes Peak are only lightly treated by Spring, however. For the Archibalds, see Louis Barry , "The Emigrant Aid Company Parties of 1854", Kansas Historical Quarterly, 12 ( 1943), 117. The family history is Joseph Wheeler, Some of the Archibald Tribe: Especially the Family of John Christie (Benson, Vermont: n.p., 1969).
3.
For James Holmes's career as Secretary, see Loomis Morton Ganaway , "New Mexico and The Sectional Controversy, 1846-1861", New Mexico Historical Review, 18 ( October, 1943), 325-348; and James B. Rhoades , "The Taming of the West: Military Archives as a Source of Social History of the Trans-Mississippi Region", in People of the Plains and Mountains
