Bobbie Kalman's acclaimed Historic Communities Series provides a close-up view of how people lived more than two hundred years ago. Colorful photos, many taken by Bobbie Kalman herself at restored historic villages across the country, help support the fascinating information. Children will have fun learning about:
-- early homes and the settler community
-- what people wore and the crafts they made
-- how settlers made their living
-- how they spent their leisure time
-- the values, customs, and traditions of the early settlers

Raised to become good wives, mothers, and housekeepers, girls and women living in the 19th century tried to create happy lives for their families. 19th Century Girls and Women reveals both the positive and negative aspects of working and wealthy-class lives in the 1800s. Colorful pictures help portray:
-- chores and immobilizing clothing
-- health hazards of the daily life of women
-- mini-biographies of seven women include Emily Stowe, Susan La Flesche, and Mary Ann Shadd.
