Susan M. Yohn here reconstructs the interactions between Presbyterian women missionaries in the southwest and the native Hispanic-Catholic people they set out to "Americanize" between 1867 and 1924. In the process, she reveals how many Protestant women reformers shared a series of experiences that contributed to a national dialogue about cultural pluralism.
