Summary
This volume presents a collection of primary sources consisting of diaries and letters written by women themselves. The intimacy of such materials reveals attitudes, feelings, and perspectives that would seldom find expression in more public documents. Included here are entries from early colonial settlement through recent times; plantation owners and slaves; Native Americans; indentured servants; women in the military and on the home front; immigrants and westward migrants; and women on the frontier of equal rights
