Book description
From the onset of the Civil War to the turn of the century, the women of rural America were isolated from the rapid and overwhelming social changes that characterized this period. They often became immersed in their roles of homemaker, wife and mother. In A Woman's Place Norton Juster brings this period of American history alive with a broad sampling of articles, letters, poems, and essays written by and for rural women.
