The Plantation Mistress is a must read to grasp the reality of plantation life during the early antebellum period. Clinton does an excellent job dispelling the myth of the Old South.

Catherine Clinton proffers an interesting and provocative image of the souther planter's wife. This book challenges the 'moonlight and magnolia' image of the elite of southern society prior to the Civil War by providing detailed examples of daily life. The position of the author is aggressive and at times somewhat overreaching for the evidence she cites,however, it raises some important questions and should be included in the library of a student of Southern history.
