"Cashin's A Family Venture is a deceptively slim volume that packs quite a wallop. In a relatively few pages she comments intelligently, provocatively, and originally on many of the most disputed subjects in southern history—the structure and function of planter families, the status and power of white women, the temperament and achievements of western migrants, and the nature of master-slave relations. Writing with clarity and grace, Cashin brings fresh interpretations to complex problems."

"This lively, human exploration of race, class, and gender in westering before the great leap of the 1850s provides a new look at the impact of individualism in unsuspected places."
