About this product
- DescriptionLouisa May Alcott was raised by her transcendentalist parents, Abigail May and Amos Bronson Alcott in New England, she grew up among many of the well-kwn intellectuals of the day such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Henry David Thoreau. On the 20th day of March, 1775, a little girl was trudging along a country road, with a basket of eggs on her arm. She seemed in a great hurry, and looked anxiously about her as she went; for those were stirring times, and Tabitha Tarbell lived in a town that took a famous part in the Revolution. She was a rosy-faced, bright-eyed lass of fourteen, full of vigor, courage, and patriotism, and just then much excited by the frequent rumors which reached Concord that the British were coming to destroy the stores sent there for safe keeping while the enemy occupied Boston. Tabby glowed with wrath at the idea, and (metaphorically speaking) shook her fist at august King George, being a stanch little Rebel, ready to fight and die for her country rather than submit to tyranny of any kind. That's from Louisa May Alcott's story, Tabby's Tablecloth, one of the round dozen stories in this volume, which also includes Grandma's Story, Eli's Education, Onawandah, Little Things, The Banner of Beaumanior, Jerseys or the Girls' Ghost, The Little House in the Garden, Daisy's Jewel Box, and How She Filled It, Corny's Catamount, The Cooking Class, and The Hare and the Tortoise.
