Summary:
Before she went on to attain literary acclaim with beloved novels like Little Women, author Louisa May Alcott grew up in an environment of abject poverty, from which she had to fight to extract herself through years of back-breaking labor. This semi-autobiographical tale recounts Alcott's initiation into the world of work and what that meant as a woman in nineteenth-century America.
