Sarah Deutsch discusses Mexican descent women as they negotiated a changing landscape in southern Colorado in the early years of the 20th century. They took a more central role in their villages as men migrated out for work. They moved into coal mining towns and ran boarding houses. They taught school, demanded their rights, and voted; they changed the landscape for themselves and their families.
