1 Farnham, Eliza W. LIFE IN PRAIRIE LANDS.
New York: Harper and Brothers, Publishers, 1846. First edition Cloth Very Good 
Sm. 8vo. 408 pp. Nicely rebound in black cloh with gilt lettering. According to Notable American Women , Farnham disdained "to struggle for equality with an 'inferior' sex. Eliza Farnham arrived at a feminist philosophy quite differeent from that of the advocates of women's rights. . . Women, she contended, should strive to elevate society as mothers and homemakers. Far from being downtrodden in America, they formed an increasingly pampered group which played a powerful part in making family decisions and often lived at ease while men toiled." Life in Prairie Land studies the customs and institutions of a rapidly developing frontier democracy in Illinois.
