Independent Woman's Lake District Writings, An (Paperback)Harriet Martineau (author)
Paperback 504 Pages
This inviting and wonderfully accessible collection of Harriet Martineau's essays (together with one fictional tale) - culled from hard-to-find American and British publications - chronicles the life, economy, society, and physical terrain of the English Lake District during the mid-Victorian era. As the first woman sociologist and an astute social observer, Martineau portrays and comments on the people of her beloved Lake District, their customs, virtues, health, and social problems.
