Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Gisela Jernigan
Little Women fans should enjoy this reprint of a Newbery Medal-winning biography of Louisa May Alcott. In this graceful, well-written account of Louisa's productive, hardworking life, the author does a good job of showing us how Louisa's family and economic problems helped to influence her most famous work, Little Women, and many of her other works for children and adults. Besides presenting the facts of her life, the author weaves in many evocative descriptions of Louisa's environment and feelings, thus creating a biography that seems more interesting and appealing than a more factual, unadorned work. An index and chronology also are included. 1995 (orig.
