Product Description

Review

"Wives and Mothers, School Mistresses and Scullery Maids is a fine example of reading sources against the grain to find new evidence and interpretations that have been missed or ignored by others. Errington searches out the reality of women's lives from commonplace evidence - a reality that at times meant drudgery, unhappy marriages, or non-conformity with the prevailing 'cult of True Womanhood.'" J.K. Johnson, History, Carleton University. "A first-rate analysis of the myriad roles played by women in Upper Canadian society in the early colonial period." Susan E. Houston, History, York University.
