“I was requested by some of the ladies to put a piece of cotton in my ears,” wrote Ann Raney Coleman, describing her experiences in a ditch during the Civil War while Yankee shells exploded around her, “but this I declined to do as I would rather hear all that was going on.” Such charmingly understated comments abound in Victorian Lady on the Texas Frontier, the journal of a spunky girl who left England with her mother and sister to come to Texas in 1832.

Book was recieved in good condition. Haven't finished reading it all yet, but so far is very interesting - describing the living and social conditions in early to mid 1800s.

When studying Texas History, invariably it is the men's accounts that are presented. Tales of daring deeds, flashing bowie knives and shoot-outs are pretty commonplace, but Anne Coleman was every inch a lady and I doubt many men could best her. A native of England, Coleman arrived on the Texas coast in the twilight of the Mexican Republic. Many might consider her work as "insignificant" but she was THERE. Her observations of typical mannerisms and the surroundings offer a unique glimpse of early Texas. Her account of life in frontier boarding houses is revealing. Such manners! (or lack thereof) Coleman played a significant part during the Battle of Fort Velasco, by molding rifle balls, cutting patches and securing gunpowder. She barely escaped a Mexican patrol after delivering the supplies. She raced across some fifteen miles on horseback and still managed to lose her attackers. Out of print for many years, Coleman's account is worth finding for your bookshelf.

The story of a difficult and remarkable life illustrating the difficulties faced by women in the Victorian era and the dramatic hardships faced by all on the Texas frontier. Being taken from journals the style is idiosyncratic and sometimes frustrating. Whole paragraphs spent on the dress worn to a ball and barely a line on important events. Some slight inaccuracies on her early life in Whitehaven being taken from memory. On the whole an interesting read and quite uplifting despite being ultimately a tale of tragedy.

A thoroughly interesting, inspirational, and sometimes heartbreaking first hand account of life on the Texas frontier. A spirited woman survives two husbands, a war for independence, a civil war, and the death of all but one of her children. Her journals reports all events from the perspective of a mid-late eighteenth century woman's concerns. For instance Ann Raney Coleman complains mightily about the poor financial decisions of her both her husbands, which rendered her penniless in her old age. But she never once questions the principle of coverture that placed her inherited property beyond her control and into the hands of her husbands, in the first place.
