Crazy Woman Creek is a collection of prose and poetry about real women in the West and their connection to a larger whole. Long troubled by the misguided images of skinny cowgirls on prancing palominos, the editors embarked on a mission to set the record straight. They wanted these western women to reveal the realities of their lives in their own words. In Crazy Woman Creek, 153 women west of the Mississippi write of the ways they shape and sustain their communities. Whether these groups are organized, imposed, or spontaneous, this collection shows that where women gather, anything is possible. Readers will encounter Buddhists in Nebraska, Hutterites in South Dakota, rodeo moms rather than soccer moms. A woman chooses horse work over housework; neighbors pull together to fight a raging wildfire; a woman rides a donkey across Colorado to raise money after the tragedy at Columbine. Women recall harmony found at a drugstore, at a powwow, in a sewing circle. Lively, heartfelt, urgent, enduring, Crazy Woman Creek celebrates community — connections built or strengthened by women that unveil a new West.

To be quite honest, the only reason I bought this book was because my friend's essay was in it. Wow! now I want to buy all of the books in this series of anthologies.

These are true stories by our friends, neighbors, and people we probably don't much care for who live down the lane. And because these women so fearlessly let us into their lives, we are able to be part of that circle of comapssion and understanding that is what I believe is the true nature of humanity.

Yeah I know, I'm making it sound like it's a bluepprint for world peace--but maybe it is!

Anyway, these are stories(and poems) that will make you weep and laugh out loud --I would recommend it to any type ofwomen studies groups.

Living on a sheep ranch in NE Washington state this book was a wonderful read. I recognized so many experiences in my own community both happy and sad that I felt like I knew most of the authors personally. I have passed this book along to numerous neighbors to enjoy. Not sure that "city folk" would appreciate some of it but us "country folk" understand where these ladies are coming from. Even the ladies from city communities had such endearing stories to tell.

For those of us who like reality reading, this book along with it's 'companions', Woven in the Wind and Leaning into the Wind, are bedside must haves. What a pleasure it is to have these stories and poems from so many women who have wrote from the hearts.

This anthology is a collection of essays and poems by women who live (or lived) in the American West, on their idea of what community means to them.

Some of these women are professional writers, and some are previously unpublished writers, but some simply have a story to tell.

And what stories! These women write in a straightforward and unpretentious manner about the women (and men) who lift them up, aggravate them, support them, teach them, and, more often than not, need their help in return. We hear stories of Native American healers, church groups serving funeral lunches, firefighters, book clubs, families, snow-shovel posses, and politics in the West.

I feel like I want to give this book to all of my close women friends, whether they physically live in my community or not.

The essays in this book will definitely make you think about your own connections to others, no matter what size town you call home. I highly recommend it, and cannot wait to get my hands on the other anthologies by these editors (Leaning into the Wind, and Woven on the Wind).
