The Plantation Mistress challenges and reinterprets a host of issues related to the Old South. The result is a book that forces us to rethink some of our basic assumptions about two peculiar institutions - the slave plantation and the nineteenth-century family. This pioneering study of the much-mythologized Southern belle offers the first serious look at the lives of white women and their harsh and restricted place in the slave society before the Civil War.

Fascinating reading if you like history. True history! This doesn't sugar coat anything, "tells it like it is". Apparently the wealthy ladies in the South didn't spend a lot of time on the veranda sipping lemonade as we thought. They worked their little derrieres off, being responsible, for instance, for personally sewing all the clothes for all the people on the plantation - her family and the slaves, perhaps a 100 or more of them. In one part, if memory serves, it says that to knit ONE sock took 6 days which seems hardly reasonable but, the author did the research. So you have two socks for every one in your family and two socks for each slave and worker on the plantation - and more than one pair each! The "Lady" knitted them along with other family women and slave women who worked in the "Big House". There were other such duties which left almost no time for being a "Southern Lady" with a fan and a julep. It's really an eye opener and will change your mind about living back in the 1800's!

Just visited Nashville, Memphis, Natchez, and New Orleans. I saw this book on a shelf there and ordered it on my Kindle.

Very detailed information about the mistress of the plantation. Frankly, I am surprised as I thought her life was one of leisure.

Catharine Clinton book takes a more in depth look at life of plantation women in the old South. The curtain is lifted and we are given a glimpse behind the image of the pampered, indulged Southern Belle. The book is a quick read, and therein lies its shortcomings. Clinton has an opportunity to explore the role of women in the antebellum South. As a geographer, I find her definitions of the South and plantations limiting. Omitting areas of the upper and mid-south seems to reinforce the image of slave-holding plantation life as something peculiar to the southern coastal plains and the lower reaches of the Mississippi River. While she quotes some letters and documents from women, I feel more examples would strengthen her view that these women were as much victims as perpetrators of the class system of the era. All said, the book is well worth reading and does cast a new perception on the way women lived in parts of the Antebellum South.

Finally a book that hits a home run portraying the authentic truth of the old south and the plantation mistress. I have read numerous journals written by women of the era and, in fact, am as close as a great-grandfather who fought for the confederacy (and I was raised by his son--grandfather). This book paints the most accurate picture that I have found, however the writers feminist views bleeds through at times. Also, the writing is a doctoral project, so keep that in mind and do not expect a breezy, easy read.

This book is just plain enjoyable! Anyone that likes to read about years gone by and the days on the plantation, you will love this book. I added this book to my "keep" collection and will share it will family and friends. This book is different and interesting!
