* It's not just homesteaders. As an OlderThanFeudalism example, Literature/TheBible contains a long monologue [[https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Proverbs+31 lines praising the virtuous wife]] of a sage busy with statecraft, and it's basically the same picture.

* Claire Fraser becomes one of these (while retaining her status of ginormous {{badass}}) in the later books in the ''Outlander'' series. 18th Century American wilderness? Pssh, it can be beaten. (It helps that she has [[PortalToThePast all the medical expertise of a 20th century medical doctor]] and a good set of vaccinations.)

* Lisa Douglas of ''GreenAcres'' is a subversion of the type, being not at all interested in helping her husband make a success of the farm. Then again, he's something of a parody of the DeterminedHomesteader type himself.

* Mrs. Jorgensen in ''Film/TheSearchers''. Her husband is not only not the DeterminedHomesteader, but he's given way to despair, blaming the country for the death of his son. His wife responds with a rousing speech of how this country will become a good place to live, even if it may take their bones in the ground to achieve it.
--> '''Mrs. Jorgensen''': It just so happens we be Texicans. Texican is nothin' but a human man way out on a limb, this year and next. Maybe for a hundred more. But I don't think it'll be forever. Some day, this country's gonna be a fine good place to be. Maybe it needs our bones in the ground before that time can come.
