Many rural Texas women joined the Farmers' Alliance and Populist Party, components of the agrarian reform movement in America in the 1880's and 1890's. Some expressed their interest in the movement by writing letters to the Southern Mercury, a Dallas-based newspaper that became the official organ of the Farmers' State Alliance and Populist Party. These letters, over one hundred in number, give some idea of the concerns, thoughts and daily lives of ordinary women in the movement

Michael Lewis Goldberg. A collection of 180 letters from women to the Southern Mercury, predominantly from 1888-1889, this is the first work of its type and as a paperback will hopefully receive wide circulation. The title of the book is inaccurate: this is, in fact, a book about women in the Farmers' Alliance, and the overwhelming majority of letters date from before a national (or Texas) Populist Party appeared.

Texas, perhaps more than any other state in the Union, has a reputation for martial prowess and a history often punctuated with wars and rumors of war. Mendoza and Grear have crystallized this perception into a useful anthology of essays that will prove valuable in the classroom and as a primer to any student of Texas and Texans. and Mexico at War.

Women who lived in the white rural South in the late nineteenth century were not expected to voice political opinions. But they were not ignorant of the issues of the day, and in the Dallas-based Populist newspaper the Southern Mercury, they found a strong outlet for expression. In Women in the Texas Populist Movement, Marion K. Barthelme presents more than a hundred letters from Texas farm women, who were becoming ever more alert to the political and economic forces impacting their lives. The agrarian reform movement was a major element of political life in Texas, and women's letters to the Texas Farmers' Alliance newspaper became increasingly passionate and forthright in expressing their concerns. The women discover a camaraderie through their letters—a recognition of their common aspirations and frustrations with a system that dismisses their experiences. Through the medium of writing, they express vibrant personalities and a pungent sense of humor. Barthelme makes this lively correspondence accessible for the first time and brings these admirable women into a historical framework to give a more complete picture of Southern history.
