Title page of an 1868 edition of Little Women.

Louisa May Alcott wrote Little Women, a story set during the U.S. Civil War. It tells about four teenage sisters, Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy Brooks, in a household headed by their mother while their father is off at war.

This book has been made into a movie at least 10 times and was popular enough that Ms. Alcott wrote the follow-up books: Good Wives, Little Men and Jo's Boys. Geraldine Brooks' Pulitzer Prize winning novel March was based on Mr. March's experiences during the war.

Other literature referred to in this book includes The Pilgrim's Progress. And Little Women is mentioned in Jean Webster's Daddy Long Legs.
