Louisa May Alcott (November 29, 1832 – March 6, 1888) was an American novelist. She is best known for the novel Little Women. Little Women was set in the Alcott family home, Orchard House in Concord, Massachusetts, and published in 1868. This novel is loosely based on her childhood experiences with her three sisters.
Chapters 24-47 were first published several years later than the original Little Women (in the UK under the title Good Wives), but the two works are now usually published together in one volume.
