ABOUT THIS BOOK
Using original sources as well as the findings of demographers, ethnologists, and cultural anthropologists, Main compares the family life of the English colonists in Southern New England with the lives of comparable groups remaining in England and of native Americans. She looks at social organization, patterns of work, gender relations, sexual practices, childbearing and childrearing, demographic changes, and ways of dealing with sickness and death.
