    1. From back cover Sarah Carter provides a detailed analysis of marriage as a diverse social institution in 19th c Western Canada She charts the ascendancy of Christian, lifelong, heterosexual, monogamous marriage as an instrument to shape and institutionalize the gender order as the foundation of this new region of the nation It took great effort to impose the monogamous model of marriage on a varied population of Aboriginal people and newcomers such as the Mormons, each with their own definitions [...]

    2. Like all of Carter s books, this is worth reading a fascinating look at Canadian colonialism and the imposition of social and spatial segregation on indigenous peoples, including but not limited to the imposition of monogamy itself and how this, contrary to colonizer mythologies, actually lowered the status and power and autonomy of Aboriginal women.

    3. I read this as part of my History Women s Gender Studies class at Athabasca University It completely surpassed my expectations and was far interesting to read than the average textbook.
