By Harriet Martineau,Michael R. Hill

This inviting and fantastically available number of Harriet Martineau’s essays (together with one fictional story) — culled from hard-to-find American and British guides — chronicles the lifestyles, economic system, society, and actual terrain of the English Lake District throughout the mid-Victorian period. because the first girl sociologist and an astute social observer, Martineau portrays and reviews at the humans of her cherished Lake District, their customs, virtues, healthiness, and social difficulties. Her many books, articles, and newspaper essays bought greatly in the course of her lifetime (1802-1876) and stay this day hugely readable, pointed, and instructive.

This very good sampling of the paintings of a pioneering sociologist and proficient author, occasionally in comparison to Thoreau, should be of significant curiosity to sociologists, students and scholars of women’s reviews, and travelers of England’s Lake District.
