Cover of 'The Bassett Women'

The Bassett Women
By Grace McClure

Grace McClure has created an even-handed account of the Bassets. Drawing on interviews with surviving family, friends and enemies, on memoirs, and on oral and written records from local libraries, newspapers, and archives she presents believable, life-size characters who respond realistically to the demands of pioneer life. The Bassett Women is one of the few creditable accounts of early settlers on Colorado's western slope, one of the last strongholds of the Old West.

Cover of 'Marta'

Marta
A Novel
By Eliza Orzeszkowa
· Translation by Anna Gąsienica Byrcyn and Stephanie Kraft
· Introduction by Grażyna J. Kozaczka

Of trailblazing Polish novelist Eliza Orzeszkowa's many works of social realism, Marta is among the best known, but until now it has not been available in English. Easily a peer of The Awakening and A Doll’s House, the novel was well ahead of English literature of its time in attacking the ways the labor market failed women.
