Verified Purchase

You must, first and foremost, approach this book more as an historical account rather than a guide for modern household living. The book was originally published in the late 1860s, and it shows not only by the turns of phrase, but by the sort of tasks and problems that a household of that era had to cope with. Even if your more modern household has the luxury of servants, they are probably not running an in-house apothecary, or keeping fireplaces maintained and lit all winter.

How much text is really needed to say "Barefoot, pregnant and stay in the kitchen"?

Every girl should learn this and a good cookbook before graduating high school.
