A Woman Rice Planter

A Woman Rice Planter

Sku: 235032

A Woman Rice Planter offers insights into a broad spectrum of Southern life after the Civil War. As an account of a woman's struggle for survival and dignity in a distinctly male-dominated society, it contributes significantly to women's history. For observers of the black experience, it affords opinionated but revealing views about African American folklife. It presents a rich portrait of a distinctive place - the South Carolina Lowcountry - in a troubled and generally undocumented time, a portrait made all the more vivid by the more than 100 fine pen-and-ink sketches of Charleston artist Alice R. Huger Smith.
