Amazon Best Seller. If you are a Civil War buff or enjoy reading eyewitness accounts, this book is for you! Entries from over 50 diaries of southern women, and slave women. As starvation stalked the land, they hid food and heirlooms in wells and swamps. They outwitted Yankee soldiers. They watched cities burn and fed hungry children. Loyal slaves and kind and cruel plantation mistresses tell their stories. Frugal Civil War recipes: oatmeal pie, “idiot’s delight cake”, etc. Authentic photos. Bravery in the face of humiliation, terror, and grief.
