This book presents the story of Catholic sisters and nuns who planted a place for themselves, their congregations, and their church in the American West. It argues that Roman Catholic nuns and sisters represented a significant part of the American narrative of women, religion, and the West. Overall, the book suggests the ways in which the West played a major role in the transformation of the European cloister into the American convent.

Keywords:   Catholic, sisters, nuns, congregations, American West, women, religion, convent
