A volume from the Pansy Books Series. Pansy (pen name of Isabella Macdonald Alden) authored approximately 100 books, coauthored 10 more, and edited or coedited several others. Most of her works are didactic fiction, heavily salted with religious principles, which concentrate on translating Biblical precepts into acceptable Christian behavior in a modern world. The Chautauqua Girls series, were motivated by her interest in the Chautauqua movement. The first volume, Four Girls at Chautauqua is said to have given an important impetus to the success of the Chautauqua experiment.
