Description
"In 1659, 22-year-old Margaret Hardenbroeck arrived in New Amsterdam as a highly independent, unattached 'she-merchant' who collected debts from a Dutch cousin's customers and sought out buyers for European merchandise. When she died three decades later, Margaret was an enormously rich, twice-married mother of five with a real estate empire stretching from Westchester and New Jersey to Barbados and a fleet of trading ships trafficking in slaves, furs, tobacco, textiles, and molasses. [Jean] Zimmerman's prodigious research unearths a mother lode of data on colonial American women, from the differences in Dutch and English inheritance laws to the fact that wealthy female colonists eschewed underpants and menstruated into exquisite handcrafted gowns."Publishers Weekly
