Overview

The Log Cabin Lady - An Anonymous Autobiography:
The story of The Log-Cabin Lady is one of the annals of America. It is a moving record of the conquest of self-consciousness and fear through mastery of manners and customs. It has been written by one who has not sacrificed the strength and honesty of her pioneer girlhood, but who added to these qualities that graciousness and charm which have given her distinction on two continents.

It took nearly a year to persuade this remarkable woman to put down on paper, from her recollections and from her old letters home, this simple story of a fine American life. She consented finally to write fragments of her life, anonymously. We were pledged not to reveal her identity. A few changes in geography and time were made in her manuscript, but otherwise the story is true to life, laden with adventure, spirit and the American philosophy. She has refused to accept any remuneration for the magazine publication or for royalties on the book rights. The money accruing from her labor is being set aside in The Central Union Trust Company of New York City as a trust fund to be used in some charitable work. She has given her book to the public solely because she believes that it contains a helpful message for other women, It is the gracious gift of a woman who has a deep and passionate love for her country, and a tender responsiveness to the needs of her own sex.
MARIE M. MELONEY.

I found the book a little unusual that the author did not want to be named even in the future. The information she shared was very interesting and informative on the attitudes then sadly in some place not that differnt from today.

Book is more a lengthy pamphlet than a book. Seems like it was a series of newspaper or magazine columns gathered into a book. Contents does not live up to the book title. Read it as an example of writing during the time period, not for information.

We have given way to fast food,dinners in front of the tv,flip flops at the white house and everything else we call manners and proper ettiquite . This should be a must read for everyone as it explains the need to know what is proper and why. As the author discovered you never know when you may need this information. Perfect example is the recent faux paus of Michelle Obama meeting Queen Elizabeth that made headlines.
