Louisa May Alcott is known universally. Yet during Louisa's youth, the famous Alcott was her father, Bronson an eminent teacher and a friend of Emerson and Thoreau. He desired perfection, for the world and from his family. Louisa challenged him with her mercurial moods and yearnings for money and fame. The other prize she deeply coveted her father's understanding seemed hardest to win.
