William and Mary Quarterly -
Cashin's A Family Venture is a deceptively slim volume that packs quite a wallop. In a relatively few pages she comments intelligently, provocatively, and originally on many of the most disputed subjects in southern history—the structure and function of planter families, the status and power of white women, the temperament and achievements of western migrants, and the nature of master-slave relations. Writing with clarity and grace, Cashin brings fresh interpretations to complex problems.
