Descrizione prodotto

Sinossi

Because of the accuracy of Edith's writing, this set of diaries should be considered a historical document. Her father, August Ziegenhorn, owned one of the most popular hardware stores in town. He eventually expanded his business to sell groceries, clothing, and other essentials. He was a veterinarian, druggist, merchant, and postmaster.
Edith describes her daily chores, church activities, births, deaths, and the general living conditions in the early 1910s in central Illinois. She also writes about traveling in both cars and buggies. This is a transitional period in America and she is young and not afraid to travel and experience life.
Some of her entries are funny, some sad, but all reflect the life going on around her. As editor, and her grand nephew, I took special care in transcribing her words exactly as they were written. By doing so, I hope I have conveyed the character of Edith and a reflection of the fact that she was only fifteen when she started to write these entries.
I consider these diaries a wealth of information about life in the early 1910s. Her words have a simplicity that expresses her honesty with her community and within herself.

This transcription of a young girl's diary from rural America in the early twentieth century gives a fascinating insight into the lives of 'ordinary' folk from that period. A time before tv, before computers when horse and buggy was the normal way to travel to town and when people still made most of their own entertainment instead of passively waiting to be entertained by others. The black and white photographs of many of the people mentioned in the diary help bring the story to life.
While this book will be of particular interest to people who have some relationship with Illinois, it will also be of interest to anyone with any curiosity about the history of everyday families, their joys, their losses, their work and play, their aspirations and their frustrations.
This is a book where nothing spectacular happens. It's a book about life as it was then.
