Calling This Place Home: Women on the Wisconsin Frontier 1850-1925 is comprehensive, absorbing to read, and enjoyable. The book covers Wisconsin history in these years primarily from the viewpoint of the girls and women, though the experience of boys and men is mentioned as appropriate. The Wisconsin counties of Lincoln, Taylor, Marathon, and Clark and the Menomineee Indian Reservation are the author's geographic region of focus. Historian Joan Jensen in 449 pleasant-to-read pages offers the story of the sociology of the women in the woodlands and farmlands economic eras, and in the family and community spheres of healing, caring for one another, education, religion, and politics. Jensen notes in her introduction that she found it essential to address the Native American women's experience as well as that of the European-American settlers. She does this well for both groups with appropriate factual information as well telling the stories of individual women and girls, including those of her mother and grandmother. Jensen gives the European roots story of many of the women. I learned a great deal about the societies and accomplishments of Ho-Chunk and Menominee women.
I learned of the importance of midwives in the communities, about dairying and cheesemaking, and about the setting up of schools and hospitals. I learned that "Not only did the sisters [nuns] staff the schools, they also did all the work at their farm convent: pulling stumps, milking cows, laying a brick road, chopping wood. One sister even became their cobbler."
I recently read (and reviewed) "A Gathering of Rivers: Indians, Metis, and Mining in the Western Great Lakes, 1737-1832." It was interesting to learn in Joan Jensen's book of two significant metisses in the geographic area she covers, Rosalie Dousman and Mary Ann Paquette.
As something of a counterpoint to the migration of European women settlers into Wisconsin rural areas, Jensen discusses the later common "moving out" of many young women off the farms and to cities such as Minneapolis-St. Paul and Milwaukee. The social life of young women in those cities is discussed.
This is a good book to read all or part of, and will serve as good future reference for me for many of the topics covered.

This book is wonderful. Being a direct descendent of these strong pioneers has a lot to do with my passion for this book. I know the places - heard some of the names - listened to stories (not the same but very, very, close), and admire the time and research spent to put this book together.

Interesting history of Wisconsin as seen through the eyes of women pioneers. If you are looking to learn more about women's roles, this is a valuable resource. Well researched.
