Village Life in America 1852-1872

by Caroline Cowles Richards

An entertaining and refreshingly original diary of a school-girl in Canandaigua, New York, begun in 1852 and continued thru twenty years. The simple ways of the villages of central New York and the homely details of life in a cultivated household, distinguished by piety and devotion to Puritan ideals, as seen thru the eyes of a shrewd and unaffected girl, are recited with a quaint, often unconscious humor and with sure literary instinct.
