Louisa May Alcott (/ˈɔːlkət, -kɒt/; November 29, 1832 – March 6, 1888) was an American novelist, short story writer and poet best known as the author of the novel Little Women (1868) and its sequels Little Men (1871) and Jo's Boys (1886). Raised in New England by her transcendentalist parents, Abigail May and Amos Bronson Alcott, she grew up among many of the well-known intellectuals of the day, such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Henry David Thoreau, and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

Louisa May Alcott (November 29, 1832 – March 6, 1888), is a beloved American novelist, best known for her classic work Little Women, which she wrote in 1868. Her revolutionary views on womanhood and equality of people helped to move a nation forward in the idea that all people are created equal by God, male or female, black or white. Louisa May Alcott was the second of four daughters born to Amos Bronson Alcott and Abigail May. From her father she gained a strong and solid education, and from her mother, affectionately known by all as Abba, she gained an enlightened understanding of charity and Christianity.

Louisa May Alcott was an American author who wrote the classic novel 'Little Women,' as well as various works under pseudonyms. Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead. I am not afraid of storms for I am learning how to sail my ship. Do the things you know, and you shall learn the truth you need to know. Louisa May Alcott Biography.

LOUISA MAY ALCOTT is universally recognized as the greatest and most popular story-teller for children in her generation. Of no author can it be more truly said than of Louisa Alcott that her works are a revelation of herself. 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. Plato says, "Beware of those who teach fables to children;" and it is impossible to estimate the influence which the popular writer of fiction has over the audience he wins to listen to his tales. She rarely sought for the material of her stories in old chronicles, or foreign adventures.

I started reading Little Women as a young child, and have gone on to read a large portion of LM Allcott's works. I have always very much enjoyed them, and felt encouraged and strengthened by them. They aren't popular today- no wizards, no violence- but they remind me of much that was good in the way my parents raised the four of us. I am not an active church goer or Christian, but I don't believe one needs to be to try to do a little good here and there. I have been, and am still, ill often and these books remind me to try to be patient and not take my frustrations on others. I love these books and stories, and cannot thank Miss Alcott enough for writing them.

For the first time in I don't know how long I am immensely disappointed with a book bought from Amazon. The reason I am is that the page on which this book is sold is badly set up and misleading. The description given is ONLY for the Kindle edition, not the hardcover. BUT the prospective buyer has to read through all the fine print before noting that discrepancy.

I have wanted a full or at least nearly full collection of Alcott's works for some time and the idea of having a biography included was really going to be a plus, I thought.

BUT the hardcover edition has only three novel, Only Two if you count as most readers do the parts of LIttle Women as one book. So you have no biography, no bibliography, no history of the writer. And then you have Little Women in two parts as originally published and LIttle Men. THAT'S IT for the novels. Unlike the description which at first appeared to be of both the hardcover and the kindle edition there are no other Alcott novels here. Jo's Boys, Rose in Bloom, Jack and Jill, Eight Cousins, Under the Lilacs are all missing. And frankly those are some of the better works.

Then you have 23 short stories none of them remarkable or well known and ONE excerpt from Alcott's Hospital Sketches. Unlike the Kindle edition there are none of Alcott's penny dreadful stories and mysteries. That's a big loss to a reader who thought she was getting a very nearly complete collection.

This is not the fault of the vendors. I have no problem with Powells. My problem here is that while showing the cover of this HARDBOUND edition the page on Amazon describes the KINDLE edtion. I'm not going to bother returning the book I'll give it to my great nieces for when they are old enough... they're two and a half and one and a half at present. But I am very disappointed by this. And I have been buying books from Amazon for a very long while now. All I can see that was needed here was a CLEAR DISTINCTION made between these two editions. I don't think the customer should be penalized with an incomplete book when she sees this kind of mistake.

Just a WARNING to anyone buying the hardcover book....it DOES NOT have the same stories as the Kindle book. They really need to update the description of this product. I ordered this book in the hopes that it would be a large volume of her works, as listed. What I got was a nice hardcover book that contained, essentially, no more then what the pictured cover says: Little Women, Little Men, and Short Stories (and not even the same short stories that are listed in the Kindle).
It's not a bad little book.....it's just not the BIG book I was hoping for.

This collection of stories is amazing!! When I got this collection of books it was free, but it is definitely worth your money! Not only are there a lot of books, there are hours of entertainment. Not one book in this collection has disappointed me. Also, it doesn't matter a bit what kind of theme you like in a story, becuase her stories range from sad love stories, the growing of young men and women and how they flourish, to mysteries including a locked box, a mysterious death to a travel story. And then, for the quieter of us, there are simple stories of the daily life of a group of children or a family, (and an especial favorite of mine about a boy who runs away from the circus...) and then simple stories that are sometimes no more than 30 pages long that are written purely for a laugh and some entertainment. This is an excellent chance for anyone, and for a good price, too. I am 10 years old (almost 11) and would recommend this book for anyone 10, almost 11 and up. Children and adults can enjoy this book no matter how old.

As a child, I loved Little Women and Little Men, but as I grew older, I also enjoyed some of Alcott's lesser known writing, so I was thrilled to find them all in one e-book. Alcott wrote during a time when people believed in God, thought parenting included teaching children to overcome their faults, and worked on correcting their own personality flaws, so these may not be for everyone. There's no sex, no "colorful" language, no drugs, only a mention of alcohol, and the romance scenes are few and very tame by today's standards. But they're good stories, some better than others, and if you liked Little Women (probably the best known) you'll probably like some, at least, of the others.
