In this classic children's story from 1869, Louisa May Alcott adapts the theme of country life vs. city life. Polly Milton is a simple country girl who stays with her rich city cousin Fanny Shaw on extended visits. The Shaws and their acquaintances consider Polly an "Old-Fashioned Girl," but Polly's beliefs about life and relationships are shown to be solid, unlike the shallow, frivolous attitudes found in the city. Gradually, Polly's influence improves the Shaws, showing them that true wealth lies in a solid family life. This Dover Evergreen Classic edition is complete and unabridged.
