About the Author

Alice Morse Earle (1851 - 1911) was an American historian and bestselling author born in Worcester, Massachusetts. When she was 23, she married and moved to New York. She began to write shortly before she turned forty. Unlike many historians of the time, Earle wrote about small sociological details rather than grand events, providing valuable insights into America's Colonial era. Earle spent all of her adult life in Brooklyn Heights, New York with her husband and four children, where she enjoyed tending her garden.
