Summary "After leaving home, Lucy Ann Lobdell moved to the frontier, married a woman, and lived for sixty years as a man named "Joe." Although twentieth-century scholars have labeled her a lesbian, this study incorporates queer theory, analysis of stories about Lucy and Joe, and Lobdell's own writings to reveal that he was actually a transgendered man"--Provided by publisher
