    3 Foggia, Lyla Reel Women, The World of Women Who Fish
    Three Rivers Press 1995 0609800280 / 9780609800287 paperback used 294 pages 
    Inscribed and flat-signed by the author on the title page.

    From the cover: "For the 15 million women who fish each year, here is the first book ever to chronicle women's extraordinary legacy in the sport. Modern sportfishing began in 1496 with the definitive "Treatyse of Fysshynge wyth an Angle," attributed to English noblewoman and nun Dame Juliana Berners. During the five centuries since, women have made - and continue to make - fishing history.

    Reel Women tells the captivating stories of the daring and the ingenious who have made a lasting impact on sportfishing. More than a hundred profiles include such figures are tiny Mrs. Keith Spalding, who landed a 426-pound swordfish in 1921, plus the living legends of flyfishing, big-game saltwater fishing, and bass fishing: from Helen Robinson, who developed a groundbreaking technique for teasing billfish into striking an artificial fly, to Sugar Ferris, founder of the first bass-fishing circuit for women.

    Featuring a comprehensive women's angling resource directory and a bibliography of books by or for women anglers, Reel Women is a great catch for readers on the distaff side of the rod-and-reel world."

    The Wounded Woman; Healing the Father-Daughter Relationship, Leonard, Linda Schierse
    5 Leonard, Linda Schierse The Wounded Woman; Healing the Father-Daughter Relationship
    Shambhala Publishing 1985 0394721837 / 9780394721835 softcover used 179 pages, 5 1/2 inches by 8 1/2 inches tall 
    from the cover: "This book is an invaluable key to self-understanding. Using examples from her own life and those of her clients, as well as from dreams, fairy tales, myths, films, and literature, Leonard, a Jungian analyst, exposes the wound of the spirit that both men and women of our culture bear - a wound that is grounded in a poor relationship between masculine and feminine principles.

    Leonard speculates that when a father is wounded in his own psychological development, he is not able to give his daughter the care and guidance she needs. Inheriting this wound, she may find her ability to express herself professionally, intellectually, sexually, and socially is impaired. On a broader scale, Leonard discusses how women compensate for cultural devaluation, resorting to passive submission, or a defensive imitation of the masculine.

    The Wounded Woman shows that by understanding the father-daughter wound and working to transform it psychologically, it is possible to achieve a fruitful, caring relationship between men and women, between fathers and daughters - a relationship that honors both the mutuality and the uniqueness of the sexes."

    Condition: Some pages have notes, marks and highlighting. Binding is tight. Cover has rubbing wear, creases, and wear to the edges and corners.

    The Eighth Mountain Press 1990 0933377134 / 9780933377134 softcover used 190 pages, 5 1/2 inches by 8 1/2 inches tall 
    from the cover: "Incidents Involving Mirth marks the first American publication of British writer Anna Livia's remarkable fiction. This exciting new collection displays the author's full range and depth - there are contemporary lesbian stories, lyrical science fiction fantasies, suspenseful dramas, fables and tall tales. They all bear the Anna Livia trademark - a glittering grace of language, a playful wit, and an ever fresh grappling with such serious concerns as the nature of love and friendship between women and the commonplace and daily violence against women. Like the best of friends, they can as easily reduce you to helpless laughter as provoke you to furious debate."

    What This Awl Means: Feminist Archaeology at a Wahpeton Dakota Village, Spector, Janet D.
    7 Spector, Janet D. What This Awl Means: Feminist Archaeology at a Wahpeton Dakota Village
    Minnesota Historical Society Press 1993 0843512774 hardcover used 161 pages 
    Signed by the author on the title page.
    From Publishers Weekly: "Frustrated by traditional approaches to interpreting archeological remains, Spector, an anthropologist at the University of Minnesota, attempts a more culturally sensitive reading of a site in Minnesota occupied by the Wahpeton (a division of the Sioux) until the 1850s. Working closely with modern descendants of those earlier inhabitants, Spector examined various tasks of daily life to try to reconstruct gender roles in the culture. In this endeavor, the awl of the title, uncovered in the dig, becomes important both for what it is able to tell us about gender roles and as a metaphor for what Spector believes should be the methodology of anthropologists. The history and daily life of the Wahpetons is imaginatively reconstructed by the author from the bits and pieces discovered in the earth. She writes with an energy and enthusiasm that make interesting what could be academic and dull."

    Condition: Ex library with library markings. Pages are clean. Inside front cover has previous owners bookplate. Cover has bumped corners and soil. Printing on spine cover is faded.
