This outstanding biography of a well-loved novelist catches the spirit of Jane Austen herself. May Lamberton Becker enjoyably introduces us to the 18th and early 19th century world Miss Austen lived in--her family, her friends, her varied settings and her many keen interests--as we are given insight to the personal background of all the Austen novels. \Enlivening her narrative with many quotations from Jane Austen's own correspondence, Miss Becker puts her own enthusiastic appreciation of one of the world's most delightful writers at our disposal. Recommended for ages 12 and up.

While her sprained ankle mends, young Gabrielle (Gay, for short) Allan decides to write a book about her home and family life on a New Zealand sheep station. To know horses, sheep, cattle and the land; to interact with local Maoris and wandering Aussies; to ride in the hunt meets, and to fall quite often into adventures of every kind are, at least according to Gay, part of what normal life should be. Through Gay's youthful recounting we begin to fall in love not only with her richly characterized New Zealand land, but above all with the adults and children (and animals!) who make up this country-bred society of the 1920s and '30s. In this one volume, readers can move from the introduction of Drovers Road to the next stage of Gay's growing-up life, when she comes into an inheritance in Cape Lost, and finally, accompany her through the tensions and rewards that bring her into adulthood in The Golden Country. Each story, with its hallmark of warm family relationships where members weather together the ups and downs of life, will be a welcome addition to the family literature bookshelf. Recommended for ages 12 and up.
