A WOMAN RICE PLANTER
by Elizabeth Allston Pringle "Patience Pennington"
Introduction by Anne M. Blythe
Pen and ink illustrations by Alice R. H. Smith
A Woman Rice Planter offers insights into a broad spectrum of Southern life after the Civil War. As an account of a woman's struggle for survival and dignity in a distinctly male-dominated society, it contributes significantly to women's history. For observers of the black experience, it affords opinionated, but nonetheless revealing, views about African American folklife. It presents a rich portrait of a distinctive place—the South Carolina Low Country—in a troubled and generally undocumented time.
