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.

As a female descent of Eliza, I am always amazed as I read more about her. These letters show great respect she had of her father and the slaves on the plantations her father owned! She taught the negro slaves to read alongside her own children! She made sure each one was educated and could take care of themselves as they became older! At 16, she had already brought her father's 3 plantations back to making money during the years he and been away leaving a 16 year old female in charge of it all. When he left, he was almost in financial ruin!
Now I know where the females in our family get their work either, success, stubbornness, and never give up attitude from!

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.
