Sunny Memories in Foreign Lands
Cosimo, Inc., 2006 M07 1 - 400 pages
If there be characters and scenes that that seem drawn with too bright a pencil, the reader will consider that, after all, there are many worse sins than a disposition to think and speak well of one's neighbors. Following the remarkable success of Uncle Tom's Cabin, Harriet Beecher Stowe made three tours to England and Europe, which inspired the two-volume set, Sunny Memories in Foreign Lands.Both volumes are a series of letters, some written on the spot - some after the author's return home - of impressions as they arose, of her most agreeable visits to England, France, Switzerland, Germany, and Belgium during the first half of the nineteenth century. Volume I contains delightful letters from Stowe's travels throughout Liverpool, Lancashire, Dumbarton Castle, Aberdeen, Warwick, Birmingham including an extensive assortment of letters from London.Best known for her pivotal novel, Uncle Tom's Cabin, HARRIET BEECHER STOWE (1811-1896) will be remembered for helping frame the institution of slavery into a moral issue. Born in New England, this daughter of a Congregationalist minister authored more than two-dozen books, fiction and non-fiction.
