Oregon's Abigail Scott Duniway was a Northwest luminary in the fight for women's rights in the late nineteenth century. Edna and John is one of her serially published novels that helped pave the way for the enfranchisement of women in the West. Presented in book form for the first time, this story of a couple who move to Idaho during the 1860s gold mining frenzy underscores women's struggles in an era when social and legal codes mainly empowered men.
