Pippa is a history buff, especially for American history. You can often find her reading some obscure journal from the 1600s, written by early explorers or settlers. Eyewitness accounts are the most interesting sources; they contain small details which give a vivid picture. Pippa researched numerous diaries of women who wrote of their Civil War experiences. These include slave accounts. We can feel as if we are there, fending off plundering Yankees, fighting starvation.
