A great, suprisingly INTERESTING, biography on the author of Little Women, Louisa May Alcott. In the book, Little Women is related to Louisa's own family.

Good book for anyone who treasures the works of Alcott, although it seems to be directed more toward younger readers. It gives great insight into Alcott's life and where she drew inspiration for her wonderful stories.

Excellent historical novel about the life of Louisa May Alcott for late elementary to middle school readers or adults who want a quick, easy refresher. I remember reading this book as a child. Good spring board to her written works and great for those interested in Alcott's life and the Concord circle of writers she knew intimately -- her father, Emerson, Thoreau and Hawthorne. Before any American child visits her home, a museum in Concord, MA, they should read this and Little Women so they have a biographical framework for the visit. It is important that every child be conversant with Louisa May Alcott and her works.
