“A Garland for Girls” is a 1893 collection of short stories by Louisa May Alcott, originally written for her own amusement. Louisa May Alcott (1832 – 1888) was an American short story writer, novelist, and poet most famous for writing the novel “Little Women”, as well as its sequels “Little Men” and “Jo’s Boys”. She grew up in New England and became associated with numerous notable intellectuals of her time, including Nathaniel Hawthorne, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and Henry David Thoreau. Contents include: “May Flowers”, “An Ivy Spray And Ladies’ Slippers”, “Pansies”, “Water-Lilies”, “Poppies And Wheat”, “Little Button-Rose”, “Mountain-Laurel And Maiden-Hair”, and “Mountain—Laurel”. “A Garland for Girls” will appeal to fans of Alcott’s wonderful work and would make for worthy addition to any collection. Other notable works by this author include: “An Old-Fashioned Girl” (1886), “Eight Cousins” (1869), and “A Long Fatal Love Chase” (1875).
