About the author (1974)

ALICE MORSE EARLE (1851-1911) was a popular writer of the Colonial Revival movement. She was the author of seventeen books, many of them about daily life in early America, especially in New England. Thanks to her meticulous research and the timelessness of her writing, a number of these books are still in print. VIRGINIA LOPEZ BEGG is a landscape historian and designer, and author of numerous articles about the role of women in shaping the American landscape, particularly through the garden literature of the 1860-1940 period.
