Description


Students learn what a day might be like in an indigo planter's life in this engaging story featuring Eliza Lucas Pinckney. Pinckney was only 22 years old when she was given responsibility to manage the three indigo plantations that her family owned in South Carolina. As we follow her through her day, we learn all the stages for creating a successful indigo crop. We also learn how difficult life was for the slaves forced to work on indigo plantations. Pinckney was so successful in trading with British textile mills that she was a major force in the economy of the colonial South.
