Boston/Cambridge, MA: Applewood Books, 1986. Trade paperback. 96 p. This is Alcott's account of her experiences as an Army nurse during the Civil War in a Washington D.C. hospital. The sketches are taken "from letters hastily written in the few leisure moments of a very busy life, " and so maintain the immediacy and force of their author. Alcott is, of course, best known as the author of Little Women. Condition: Good. No dust jacket as issued. Signed by previous owner. Ink mark on back cover.
