The era of the southern plantation was a time when many wealthy “planters” lived in grand style next door to the slaves who helped them achieve it. Life on a Plantation introduces children to the daily routine of a plantation and compares the daily lives of both masters and slaves explaining their roles and duties. Slavery is shown in the context of day-to-day work. Young readers will learn about:
• life in the “Big House” and in the slave quarters
• work in the cotton, rice, and tobacco fields
• the customs and traditions of both black and white communities
• how the slaves helped support each other and pass along African American traditions

Life on a Plantation

" ...With paintings & color photos, (Life on a Plantation) describes daily life, cutsoms & activities of whites & blacks on a typical Pre-Civil War plantation.
