About this title

Synopsis:

The classic trilogy, in a hardcover collector's edition complete with the original illustrations. From the incidents of her own remarkable childhood, Louisa May Alcott fashioned a trilogy of novels that catapulted her to fame and fortune and that remain among the most beloved works in all of American literature. Here, in an authoritative single-volume edition, is the complete series. In Little Women, set in New England during the Civil War, Alcott introduces the unforgettable March sisters, Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy. Little Men follows Jo, now married, into adulthood, as she finds herself the caretaker of a houseful of rambunctious children at Plumfield School. Jo’s Boys returns to Plumfield a decade later; now grown, Jo’s children recount adventures of their own.
