1897. Louisa May Alcott, the author of Little Women, is universally recognized as the greatest and most popular story teller for children in her generation. She has known the way to the hearts of young people, not only in her own class, or even country, but in every condition of life, and in many foreign lands. An Old-Fashioned Girl is about Polly's friendship with the wealthy Shaws of Boston and how she helps them to build a new life when they fall upon hard times and in turn learns the truth about the relationship between happiness and riches.
