Voices of American Homemakers
Indiana University Press, 1985 - House & Home - 295 pages
With voices of homemakers from all over the United States, excerpts from their taped interviews, this work tells of their experiences as children, wives, and mothers. They reminisce about life as it used to be on the farm and in small towns, with tales of one-room schools, sod houses, long underwear, childbirth at home, outside privies, and more.
