Glad someone mentioned Robert Nelson's Hauling Toto Big, fantastic to know that some people have seen that one - it hasn't gotten around very much, and I really think it's one of his masterworks.

I also heartily second Deborah Stratman's From Hetty to Nancy, which is really excellent. And Joyce Wieland's work is well worth including.
