Wondering if any of you know of any book (fiction or nonfiction) which indicates 
the likelihood of a woman in the 1880s inheriting a farm over her brother(s), even 
if she is the eldest.

Also, along a similar line, if there is material that shows deviation from the 
traditional "woman's work" on a farm. Both are needed to include in a paper on 
discussing Alexandra in O Pioneers.

Thanks for any light you can shed on this subject.
