From the back cover:
"One of the most intriguing cultural artifacts of our nation's past was made by young girls - the embroidery sampler. In Ohio Is My Dwelling Place, Sue Studebaker documents the samplers created in Ohio prior to 1850, the girls who made them, their families, and the teachers who taught them to stitch.
In this lavishly illustrated book, these now highly prized works are coupled with the stories behind their creations and circumstances under which they were sewn. Ohio Is My Dwelling Place also includes an extensive chart of known pioneer teachers and schools in Ohio, as well as a listing of documented Ohio samplers.
These samplers serve as a tangible and enduring legacy of the Ohio Country when it was the frontier of a fledgling nation. Sue Studebaker's informative keepsake volume presents the fascinating stories of the samplers and the girls and young women who created them."
