Excerpt from The Woman's Story, as Told by Twenty American Women: With Portraits, and Sketches of the Authors

The woman's story as told by twenty American women is a composite picture of the representative fiction work of the female writers of the republic. It is one which depicts the types and characteristics of people who unitedly compose our young nation. The composite woman's picture is full of patriotic fire; of the fervor and faith of free institutions, and is distin guished by a zealous allegiance to the domestic quali ties of the people, which have found widest expression under our form of government. The difierences in population; the varieties of classes, and the broad distinctions in local coloring are vividly exhibited in the annals of American fiction, the largest contributors to which are women. The compilation represents the field of fiction, from the appearance of the first great American novel to the present day. Mrs. Stowe's sketch of New England life, which Opens the volume, was the forerunner of Uncle Tom's Cabin, and is as graphic 3 pen-picture of the phase of life it represents as was her famous novel of slavery. Miss Alcott's Transcendental Wild Oats is the truest delineation of the salient features of the Transcendental movement yet made, and is as striking in its faithfulness as is Mrs. Stowe's Uncle Lot.
