Accounts of the history of religion in America, so preoccupied with the absence of women from official positions, often fail to recognize the women who did attain leadership positions in their denominations. This group biography of twenty-one women who built up some 1,200 fledgling congregations on the Great Plains documents the struggles of these nineteenth-century women to find a place beside their male colleagues in the liberal denominations of American religion.
