"This book should be read by the children's children of the South"-Jefferson Davis This reminiscence of daily life on a Southern plantation during the Civil War was originally published in 1888. This book is filled with vivid details of everything from methods of making dyes and preparing foods to race relations and the effects of the war. The book is an unusual and beautifully written primary source of Southern life inside the blockade, and it is told from a point-of-view that is decidely different from most Northern post-war accounts, but never seems unreasonable.
