Oldtown folks by Harriet Beecher Stowe( Book )

118 editions published between 1869 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 2,279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"My object is to interpret to the world the New England life and character in that particular time of its history which may be called the seminal period. New England has always been a capital country to emigrate from, and North, South, East and West have been populated largely from New England, so that the seed-bed of New England was the seed-bed of this great American Republic, and of all that is likely to come of it."--Preface

The minister's wooing by Harriet Beecher Stowe( Book )

189 editions published between 1859 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 2,151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mary Scudder lives with her widowed mother in a modest middle-class home. Dr. Hopkins, a Calvinist minister who boards with them, is dedicated to helping the slaves arriving at Newport and calls for the abolition of slavery. The pious Mary admires him but is also in love with the passionate but skeptical James Marvyn who, hungry for adventure, joins the crew of a ship setting sail for exotic destinations. When James is presumed lost at sea, Mary fears for his soul, and consents to marry the good Doctor. With important insights on slavery, history, and gender, as well as characters based on historical figures, it is an attempt through fiction to create a moral, intellectual, and affective history for New England

Dred : a tale of the great Dismal Swamp by Harriet Beecher Stowe( Book )

179 editions published between 1850 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,658 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written partly in response to the criticisms of Uncle Tom's Cabin by both white Southerners and black abolitionists, Dred (1856) extends the plantation novel to examine, in the words of its author, "the views and reasonings of those who have bowed down to the yoke, and felt the iron enter into their souls." Through the compelling stories of Nina Gordon, the mistress of a slave plantation, and Dred, a black revolutionary, Stowe brings to life the conflicting beliefs about race, the institution of slavery, and the need for the radical action that erupted during the 1850s. Exploring the political and spiritual goals that fuel Dred's rebellion, she creates a figure far different from the acquiescent Christian martyr, Uncle Tom."--Jacket
The pearl of Orr's Island; a story of the coast of Maine by Harriet Beecher Stowe( Book )

150 editions published between 1861 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The rural tranquillity of the lonely, pine-girthed shores of the Maine coast is the setting for this beautiful novel of conflicting aspirations written by one of the most prolific and influential writers in American history. Here is the heartwarming story of a young girl's struggle to belong and fit in, in the face of adversity, and of her upbringing among strong women, grumpy fishermen, annoying gossips, sea captains, and the dreamlike, temptestuous landscape of Orr's Island." --Google books
The American woman's home by Catharine Esther Beecher( Book )

73 editions published between 1869 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The American woman's home, originally published in 1869, was one of the late nineteenth century's most important handbooks of domestic advice. The result of a collaboration by two of the era's most important writers, this book represents their attempt to direct women's acquisition and use of a dizzying variety of new household consumer goods available in the post-Civil War economic boom. It updates Catharine Beecher's influential Treatise on domestic economy (1841) and incorporates domestic writings by Harriet Beecher Stowe first published in The Atlantic in the 1860s. Today, the book can be likened to an anthology of household hints, with articles on cooking, decorating, housekeeping, child-rearing, hygiene, gardening, etiquette, and home amusements. The American woman's home illuminates women's roles a century and a half ago and can be used for comparison with modern theories on the role of women in the home and in society
Lady Byron vindicated; a history of the Byron controversy, from its beginning in 1816 to the present time by Harriet Beecher Stowe( Book )

52 editions published between 1870 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 846 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First English Edition, published the same year as the American edition. Stowe had met Lady Byron in London in 1857, and decided she "was the most noble-hearted woman who had ever lived." Lady Byron took her into her confidence and divulged that of all her late husband's sins, the one she could not forgive was that he had been guilty of incest with his own sister. Eleven years later, after Lady Byron's death, one of Byron's mistresses published memoirs that spoke disparagingly of Lady Byron; Stowe decided that it was her Christian duty to set the record straight, and did so first with an article in the Atlantic Monthly and then with this book. Reaction was tumultuous, and "ultimately Mrs. Stowe appears to have realized that she made the worst mistake of her professional life when she publicized Lady Byron's confidences" [Gerson]. The English edition contains a "Note of the Publishers," which did not appear in the American edition
Agnes of Sorrento by Harriet Beecher Stowe( Book )

97 editions published between 1862 and 2013 in English and held by 622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The heroine of this 1862 historical novel is Agnes, a country girl living amidst the spiritual tranquility of an Italian convent. With her hand sought by a cast-out Italian prince, she is torn between the prospect of love and her sense of duty to the charismatic monk Savonarola, the instigator of the original and actual fifteenth-century "Bonfire of the Vanities."
Poganuc people: their loves and lives by Harriet Beecher Stowe( Book )

62 editions published between 1878 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Best known for Uncle Tom's Cabin, her classic depiction of slavery that crysalized sentiment in the abolitionist cause, Harriet Beecher Stowe was also the author of this lesser-known but wonderfully rich reminiscence of life in early 19th century New England. Poganuc People was Stowe's last novel
My wife and I: or, Harry Henderson's history by Harriet Beecher Stowe( Book )

61 editions published between 1861 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 573 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The inspiration for the character of Tom Bolton in this novel was Harriet Beecher Stowe's son, Frederick. Frederick fought for the Union in the Civil War and had problems with alcohol for many years. Once home from the war, he became a severe alcoholic. In 1870, he traveled to California, disappeared shortly thereafter and was presumed dead. Beecher Stowe's portrayal in this book, published two years later, of alcoholism as a disease and not as a moral or social failing is unusual for its time. Also notable for its time, the novel makes a case for a woman's right to a career

Stowe in her own time : a biographical chronicle of her life, drawn from recollections, interviews, and memoirs by family, friends, and associates by Harriet Beecher Stowe( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"One of the first celebrity authors, Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811-1896) became famous almost overnight when Uncle Tom's Cabin - which sold more than 300,000 copies in its first year of publication - appeared in 1852. Known by virtually all famous writers in the United States and many in England and regarded by many women writers as a role model because of her influence in the literary marketplace, Stowe herself was the subject of many books, articles, essays, and poems during her lifetime." "This volume brings together for the first time a range of primary materials about Stowe's private and public life written by family members, friends, and fellow writers who knew or were influenced by her before and after Uncle Tom's Cabin catapulted her to fame. Included are periodical articles by Fanny Fern and Charles Dudley Warner; biographical essays by Sarah Josepha Hale and Rose Terry Cooke; letters by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, and Harriet Jacobs; recollections by Frederick Douglass, Annie Adams Fields, Isabella Beecher Hooker, and Charles Beecher; and poems by Paul Laurence Dunbar and John Greenleaf Whittier. An introduction at the beginning of each essay connects it to its historical and cultural context, explanatory notes provide information about people and places, and the book includes a detailed introduction and a chronology of Stowe's life." "The thirty-eight recollections gathered in Stowe in Her Own Time form a biographical narrative designed to provide several perspectives on the famous author, sometimes in conflict and sometimes in agreement but always perceptive. The figure who emerges from this insightful, analytical collection is far more complex than the image she helped construct in her lifetime."--Jacket
