Thomas Jordan's diary is a day-by-day account of farm life in rural Maine during the 1840s. The writer, an intelligent and industrious farmer, provides us with an unparalled look at the past as our country was entering a new age. Extensive annotation by one of the diarist's descendents serves to bridge the time gap between then and now.
