Written in the face of immense obstacles during the Civil War, this book was Trollope's defence of the Union and the North's right to preserve it. Consequently, unlike his mother's book on American manners written 30 years earlier, it was well received in America, but met with a certain amount of British hostility. Trollope looked beneath the surface of what he first saw as a savage country and discovered that what the British would consider barbarism and lack of deference could be attributed to equality and the pride of the individual.

Anthony Trollope (24 April 1815 – 6 December 1882) was one of the most successful, prolific and respected English novelists of the Victorian era. Among his best-loved works is a series of novels collectively known as the Chronicles of Barsetshire, which revolves around the imaginary county of Barsetshire. He also wrote perceptive novels on political, social, and gender issues, and on other topical matters. Trollope's literary reputation dipped somewhat during the last years of his life, but he regained the esteem of critics by the mid-twentieth century.
