312 pp. "As the author notes in her introduction, this volume might have been better titled "Colonial Days in New Netherland" because much of the material pertains to the fifty year period of Dutch rule, as the following chapter titles suggest: The Life of a Day; Education and Child-Life; Wooing and Wedding; Town Life; Dutch Town Homes; Dutch Farmhouses; The Dutch Larder; The Dutch Vrouws; The Colonial Wardrobe; Holidays; Amusements and Sports; Crimes and Punishments; Church and Sunday in Old New York; and "The End of His Days." Mrs. Earle (1853-1911) was a popular antiquarian and historical writer whose numerous works on early American life are still sought after for informative and entertaining reading. Many of her works are cited in the Harvard Guide to American History."
