Reordering the Landscape of Wye House: Nature, Spirituality, and Social Order

$89.00
DESCRIPTION

This book examines early European American and African American gardening practices, social order, and material culture at the Wye House plantation. Located on the eastern shore of Maryland, this plantation housed the Welsh Lloyd family and hundreds of enslaved Africans and African Americans, including Frederick Douglass. Pruitt examines the different possible interactions and understandings of nature at the Wye House and their impact on the dynamic, culturally-based, and entangled landscape of imposed and hidden meanings, colonization and resistance, and science and magic. This book is recommended for scholars interested in historic and public archeology, applied anthropology, American and African American history, and race studies.
