Description of this Book

Part of the Gibbs Smith Women's Voices series: A collection of literary voices written by, and for, extraordinary women-to encourage, challenge, and inspire. Louisa May Alcott (1832-1888) published more than thirty books in her lifetime, but it was her girls' story (written at the request of her publisher), Little Women, that has captured the imagination of millions of readers. This coming-of-age story spotlights beloved tomboy Jo March (arguably America's first juvenile heroine and a reflection of a young Alcott herself) and Jo's three sisters: Meg, Beth, and Amy in a heartwarming family drama. Originally published in two parts, in 1868 and 1969, Little Women has never been out of print. Continue your journey in the Women's Voices series with Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Bronte (ISBN: 978-1-4236-5099-7), The Feminist Papers, by Mary Wollstonecraft (ISBN: 978-1-4236-5097-3), Hope Is the Thing with Feathers, the complete poems of Emily Dickinson (ISBN: 978-1-4236-5098-0), and The Yellow Wallpaper and Other Writings, by Charlotte Perkins Gilman (ISBN: 978-1-4236-5213-7).
