Women played a vital role in the shaping of the West in Canadabetween the 1880s and 1940s. Yet surprisingly little is knownabout their contributions or the differences sex and gender made to theopportunities and obstacles women encountered. Telling Talescontributes to the rewriting of western Canada's past byintegrating women into the shifting power matrix of class, race, andgender that formed the basis of colonization and settlement.

Telling Tales both challenges founding myths of the regionand inspires rethinking of how we tell the story of western Canadiancolonization and settlement.
