The Essential Collection.
Complete and unabridged, this is the first book about the March family, their friends and their lives.
The good-natured March girls - Meg, Jo, Beth and May - manage to lead interesting lives despite Father's absence at war and the family's lack of money. Whether they're making plans for putting on a play or forming a secret society, their gaiety is infectious and even Laurie next door is swept up in their enthusiasm.
Written from Louisa May Alcott's own experiences, this is a remarkable story.
