These colourful diaries and personal letters provide fascinating insights into the lives of Nova Scotian women in periods of rapid and dramatic historical change.
The editors have discovered a wealth of material chronicling the lives of women since the late-eighteenth century, women with rich and varied life-experiences: missionaries, teachers, office workers, farmers, housekeepers and factory workers, both young and old, rural and urban.
No Place Like Home offers immediate, intimate reflections on the remarkable range of experiences enjoyed--and suffered--by Nova Scotia women.
