Beschreibung"I am a little Alabama girl living on the frontier where the wild animals is plentiful," wrote May Jordan in 1912. "This rare journal of a twenty-three-year-old backwoods woman who accompanied her father on two trips to Washington County, Alabama, to buy furs, provides a unique picture of rural life in southwestern Alabama in the early twentieth century. Jordan cooked meals, helped out with the business, and recorded their experiences, providing a vivid portrait of wilderness travel, social customs, and the routine of the fur trade, and describing the flora and fauna, religion, economy, women, folkways, roads, and neighborliness of the frontier region." - Documentary Editing "May had little formal education, but displayed a natural writing talent.... [She] emerges from these pages as a happy and likable woman. Her style is arresting and her humor homespun and playful." - Mobile Register"
