On offer is a nice 1920 period diary from a hard working Vermont woman. As is typical with these early diaries the women work along side the men and usually toil longer. In this book we find a cattle ranch near Rutland Vermont with our author spending a great deal of time breeding cows and bulls, delivering milk, tending calves but also chopping wood and all the household chores too. The only thing they haven't time for is complaint. This diary in particular will provide local historians and collectors of the importance of weather to these families. Severe blizzard weather is recorded on a near daily basis for many stretches of winter yet still they toil. Our writer is a very good diarist noting purchases, costs, sales, weather and local events of all types from train wrecks to sheep killings by wild dogs and as is usual a detailed accounts section in the back of the page per day diary. Some loss to the spine but otherwise sound and overall G+.
