During the years of settlement and exploration of the North American continent, women's position in society was largely restricted to the domestic sphere. Finding an Identity describes the roles women played as colonists settled in what is now the Americas and explores the variations in the roles of women, especially in Native American and African-American cultures. Furthermore, this engaging title examines the growing responsibility accepted by women in colonial society as the colonists moved toward independence from their home countries.
