In 1907, the author, poet, essayist, and folk art historian Eliza Calvert Hall (1856-1935) published ""Aunt Jane of Kentucky"", a collection of stories about rural life infused with the spirit and gentle good humor of its elderly narrator, Aunt Jane. The book and several sequels achieved wide popularity and placed Hall in the front ranks of ""local color"" fiction writers of her time. As Hall struggled to balance her writing career with the duties of a nineteenth-century wife and mother, suffragist Laura Clay was lobbying for every woman's right to vote. Hall joined the battle, writing fearlessly in support of suffrage and equality. While her passionate essays served as a direct appeal for this cause, her creative writing also carried a feminist spirit, celebrating the strength, humor, love, and art of the common woman. In ""Eliza Calvert Hall"", Lynn E. Niedermeier tells the story of this remarkable Kentucky woman for the first time.
