This edition brings to you her 7 hard hitting anti-slavery stories in one volume: Slavery's Pleasant Homes The Quadroons Charity Bowery The Emancipated Slaveholders Anecdote of Elias Hicks The Black Saxons Jan and Zaida Lydia Maria Child (1802–1880) was an American abolitionist, women's rights activist, Native American rights activist, novelist, journalist, and opponent of American expansionism. Her journals, both fiction and domestic manuals, reached wide audiences from the 1820s through the 1850s. At times she shocked her audience as she tried to take on issues of both male dominance and white supremacy through her stories.
