Abstract:

It was during the colonial years that the matrix of our nation was formed. Scholars have studied many aspects of colonial political organization and religious thought, but as of 1920, relatively few had examined the day-to-day life of the colonists themselves, and fewer, if any, had focused on the role of women. Carl Holliday did just that. His highly informative volume on the ways of colonial women is a fascinating source of information on the life of women during this period--how they lived, their work and play, what and how they thought and felt, their strength and their everyday existence. Through extensive use of diaries. letters and other contemporary sources the author succeeded in creating an absorbing and faithful portrayal of the women of early America in both the northern and southern colonies. His work is still considered a highly readable, convenient source of reliable data on this period.--From publisher description.
