Chronicles the evolution of the dowry as practiced by the rural Pa.-German and Anglo-Saxon farm families from the mid-18th century to current and similar practices among the Amish. It shows how those "gifts from home" were, and are, part of a complex inheritance system. (88pp. color illus. index. Oral Traditions Project, 1990.)
