Slaves on a Southern Plantation (Daily Life) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Each book focuses on the daily life and activities of people within a particular community and time period. By viewing history and contemporary life through people's everyday experiences, readers learn about such topics as education, food, clothing, religion, social status, and other relevant areas. For more than 150 years, starting before 1700, people from Africa and their descendants were forced to work as slaves on large plantations in the American South. They worked long days for no pay and without a say in their own lives. They endured cruel punishments, poor food, shabby clothes, and ramshackle housing. Plantation slaves suffered many hardships, yet they fought not only to survive but also to preserve their humanity. At this they were successful, working and developing skills, and creating loving families and homes.
