"A beautifully crafted book. . . . Although it varies in intensity, the response of women to the environment is virtually always different from the male frontiersman's view of the land as inanimate, boundless, conquerable and controllable." —Polly Wells Kaufman in Women's Review of Books
"A powerful masterpiece." —Eve Gruntfest in The Professional Geographer
