Earthbound and Heavenbent: Elizabeth Porter Phelps and Life at Forty Acres (1747 – 1817)

By

A contemporary of nation-makers, Elizabeth Porter Phelps lived in her family’s house for all but the first five of her 70 years, keeping a diary from adolescence onward. In Earthbound and Heavenbent, Elizabeth Pendergast Carlisle excerpts from this text and illuminates it faithfully within the context of its time. Painstakingly researched and verified through additional sources, this is an extraordinary account of one American woman’s 18th century life.
