(Henry Holt and Co, 2009)

When Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women was published in 1868 it
was an instant success. Louisa drew on her experiences in writing the
novel, but there’s a lot more to her rags-to-riches story. Louisa came
from a family that was poor but freethinking, and she started teaching
when she was only seventeen years old. But writing was her passion. This
informative biography captures the life of a compassionate woman who
left an indelible mark on literature for all ages.
