From the Back Cover:

The diary is an illuminating account of southern plantation society and the 'peculiar institution' of slavery on the eve if its destruction.

From Publishers Weekly:

In this illuminating memoir of life in the American South before and during the Civil War, Seabury (1827-1893), a white, middle-class New England teacher, tells of leaving her home in 1854 and relocating to Mississippi, where she teaches the daughters of rich Southern plantation-owning families until 1863, when she returns North. A "Yankee" outsider, Seabury describes the "great gulf" between husbandless female instructors like herself and the "dilapidated" Southern aristocracy. She decries slavery and, despite her naivete and prejudice, writes movingly about the plight of black women. When she sees a widowed servant being sold without her children at a slave auction, she observes, "the woman said not a word, but her looks told what was in her heart . . . she sobbed bitterly. . . . Here was one of my own sex almost as light in color. . . . I could not keep back my own tears. . . ." This is an eloquent historical record that raises disturbing questions about the lingering psychological effects of slavery on our society today. Bunkers is a professor of English at Mankato State University in Minnesota. Illustrations not seen by PW.
