Description

Among her friends and neighbors in Concord, MA were Henry David Thoreau and Ralph Waldo Emerson. All of these things, as well as her love and dedication to her family and her passion for writing, were factors which led her to write "Little Women" Come and meet Louisa May Alcott and learn more about this fascinating woman and her life.
