Born in Germantown, Pennsylvania, Louisa May Alcott (1832-1888) spent her childhood in Boston and Concord, Massachusetts. Influenced by her transcendentalist father's friends Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau, Alcott began writing at an early age as she sought a way to help her impoverished family. A feminist, abolitionist, and accomplished novelist with fifteen titles and numerous short stories to her name, Alcott is best known for her timeless classic Little Women and its sequels, Little Men and Jo's Boys.

- I'll try and be what he loves to call me, "a little woman," and not be rough and wild; but do my duty here instead of wanting to be somewhere else.
- Money is a needful and precious thing, --and, when well used, a noble thing, --but I never want you to think it is the first or only prize to strive for. I'd rather see you poor men's wives, if you were happy, beloved, contented, than queens on thrones, without self- respect and peace.
