Description

A wonderful treasury of Louisa May Alcott’s short stories. It contains three of Alcott’s original collections; “On Picket Duty, and Other Tales”, “Proverb Stories” and, “Spinning-Wheel Stories”. 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. This charming collection of stories are not to be missed by fans of Alcott’s work and would make for a worthy addition to any bookshelf. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.
