Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Taken from Chapter 3: Plantation jobs The planter family The planter, or master, was the head of the plantation. He managed the money and farm work and told family members and slaves what they could and could not do. On smaller plantations, he often worked with his slaves in the fields. The planter's wife managed the Big House. She gave directions to the slaves on meal preparation, cleaning and watching the children. Some wives also supervised the women's workshops. If the planters children were old enough, they also helped manage the workers.

Review:

Without resorting to graphic violence, this book presents an honest portrait of slavery and the planter class which benefitted from it -- BCA Books Informed Resource
