Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Craven, the author of numerous volumes on Southern history, here tells the story of Rachel O'Connor, who managed a plantation in the West Feliciana Parish in the 1800s. Gleaned from primary sources, including several hundred of O'Connor's letters, this is not only a portrait of Rachel but of a way of life and of Louisiana itself.
