Book by Housley, Kathleen L.

Housley presents the lives of five noble women: the Smith sisters of Glastonbury, Connecticut. Although they never strayed beyond the boundaries of their hometown, their intellectual gifts and abilities led them far afield. This slice-of-life portrait of life in early 19th-century New England is ripe with caricatures of the American frontier spirit as well as Yankee determination as the sisters become involved not only in Bible translating but in advocating abolition and women's suffrage long before either became fashionable. They steered clear of much of the prevailing Christian upheaval caused by the various Awakenings, but Christian principles guided all their efforts and informed their view of their fellow men and women. This book is well footnoted and researched, but because of its limited scope it belongs primarily in collections of New England history and women's studies.
