Frontier life during the nineteenth century kicked open the swinging doors
of the Wild West. Combined with the westward expansion of the United
States, women during this time period had more opportunities to acquire
wealth, property, and a life of their own than ever before. This investigation
attempts to piece together the paradoxical roles of identity and economic
reward for women in the old west, by using a comparative, qualitative
study of primary and secondary sources to review women's biographies and
autobiographies to understand their motives for occupying tenuous positions
during westward expansion.
