History Prof. John Schlotterbeck Authors Daily Life in the Colonial South

May 30, 2013

John Schlotterbeck, professor of history at DePauw University, is the author of Daily Life in the Colonial South. The new book is part of the The Greenwood Press "Daily Life Through History" series.

"This work provides the first synthesis of daily life in the colonial South from the time of European arrival to 1770 -- a period that is often overlooked or treated briefly in most surveys on the history of the South," notes a description of the title. Daily Life in the Colonial South describes how a diverse mix of people created new patterns of living, behaving, and believing across diverse and changing physical, demographic, economic, and social environments by adapting inherited cultures in new settings."
