A Midwife's Tale


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.

Excellent especially for those interested in the life of a woman in early America. Ulrich keeps the diary entrees in historical context.
