"A Book of Small" collects 36 stories based on her frontier beginnings and stars a colorful cast of friends, family, neighbors, and strangers, from genteel socialites to saloon ruffians -- all seen through the eyes of a curious, irrepressible girl. A constant throughout the book is Father, an unforgettable eccentric whom Carr portrays with telling humor. Carr's writing is as highly regarded today as when she was first published. In print continuously since its first publication in 1942, "A Book of Small" appears here with a fresh new design and an introduction by Sarah Ellis that offers historical and literary context for the book and its author.Read Less
