This dissertation examines the cultural and educational history of central Missouri between 1820 and 1860. In particular, the issue of the master-slave relationships and how they affected education (broadly defined as the transmission of Southern culture) is studied. Although, Missouri was one of the lowest in slave population during the Antebellum period, Central Missouri, or what became known as Little Dixie, had slave percentages that rivaled many regions and counties of the deep-south. However, the slaves and slave owners interacted on a regular basis which affected cultural transmission in the areas of religion, work, and community. Generally, slave owners in Little Dixie showed a pattern of paternalism in all these areas. The slaves, on the hand, did not always accept their master's paternalism and attempted to forge a life of their own.

"Stone's study of life on the peripheries of slavery -- both literally and figuratively -- enhances our understanding of slavery in the American South."
