Format: Paperback
Eliza Lucas Pinckney did almost everything. She was the daughter of a British Officer, making her a military brat, she helped run the plantation, developed the market for indigo that allowed Charleston, SC, to survive, wrote a cook book, educated some of her slaves, made sure her children were educated and fought cancer! Her letters are full of amazing facts, of both her daily life and the life of the colonists. Her letters cover everything from her own problems to wars, Indian attacks and taxes. It is a great addition to any library.

I thought I had written a review for this book awhile back but hadn't so here it is. Wonderful journal of information on Eliza Lucas Pinchney, a South Carolina woman of history who brought Indigo into prominence. Fascinating research within about this woman and her passion for nature and plant dye.

This is a little difficult to read because it is the publication of letters written by a colonial woman. The editors have worked to make it more understandable (spelling and language). I liked reading this, however, because it revealed the character of Eliza Lucas Pinckney. She was a very unusual, fascinating woman. I don't know too many young women who could effectively run 3 huge plantations at the age of 16.

Having recently relocated to Charleston, I began my historical research of my new city with Eliza Pinkney story. I appreciated reading her letters to compare to the historical fiction I was reading about her. Fascinating woman. Slightly dry, hence my 4 star rate
