Anecdotal history of a young woman's life in a Michigan settlement


A middle class woman with literary interests, Caroline Kirkland moved with her husband and children to Michigan in the 1830s. This database, first published in 1839, is her "honest portraiture of rural life in a new country." Through a series of vignettes and anecdotes, Kirkland brings to life the social and material culture of a frontier community. Researchers will find vivid descriptions of social life and social roles, especially of the settlement's women. For those wishing to see the development of a Midwest town, from the perspective of a woman, this can be an interesting narrative.
