Item description

"Whereas male commentaries frequently focus on larger events in history at the expense of the common people, this collection of twenty-seven accounts by European women, who visited America between 1775 and 1918, reveals ordinary life on a day-to-day basis in America. Marion Tinling has gathered these primary-source accounts by women who tell of fighting slavery, dining in the White House, and struggling for social justice and women's rights, as well as traveling in Yosemite, the Rocky Mountains, and among the Chippewa and California Indians. From comments about bad manners of Americans to beautiful descriptions of natural wonders, these accounts reveal a history of the United States through women's eyes."
