Martha Ballard was a midwife and medical practitioner. Her diary recounts the sensational events of her neighborhood--whether it be the ex-minister's wife charging a local judge with rape or the mass murder of a family--and catches the small movements that characterized life and death in an 18th-century town. Illustrated.
