About this title


Book by Elizabeth Silverthorne

From Library Journal:

Texas plantations of the 19th century come to life in the first volume of this series. Silverthorne, a children's author, explores every aspect of daily plantation life without romanticizing it. Her research is based on the documents of planters from the early 1820s through the 1850s and into Reconstruction, as well as on WPA interviews with former slaves, giving a balanced view of this short but crucial chapter in Texas history. The exquisite pen and brushwork of noted Texas artist and illustrator Shaw gives details of the food, shelter, clothing, and recreation of the plantation family as well as the slaves. A fine addition to 19th-century American history collections. Olga B. Wise, American Heart Assn . -National Ctr. Lib., Dallas
