Putting the Barn Before the House: Women and Family Farming in Early Twentieth-Century New York - by Grey Osterud
Published by Cornell University Press, Ithaca and London, 2012
“Putting the Barn Before the House is the very fruitful result of years of research and thought. It is an essential addition to our understanding of how the stands of gender, economy, and community intertwine in American history. Grey Osterud combines vivid oral histories with a thoughtful presentation of the transformation of one agricultural area, the Nanticoke Valley of New York.” (Joan M. Jensen, author of Loosening the bonds: Mid-Atlantic Farm Women, 1750-1850).
