Woman in the Wilderness: Letters of Harriet Wood Wheeler, Missionary Wife, 18321892

Descriere: Woman in the Wilderness is a collection of letters written between 1832 and 1892 to and by an American woman, Harriet Wood Wheeler. Harriets letters reveal her experiences with institutions that played pivotal roles in the history of American women: the beginnings of a literate female work force at the mills in Lowell, Massachusetts, where Harriet grew up; the first schools for women teachers, like the Ipswich Female Seminary Harriet attended; the establishment of womens associations, especially in churches; and the close and enduring ties that characterized womens relationships in the late nineteenth century. Harriets letters also provide an intimate view of the relationships between American Indians and Euro-Americans in the Great Lakes region, where she settled with her Christian missionary husband.
