The story of a pioneer by Anna Howard Shaw( Book )

29 editions published between 1895 and 1998 in English and held by 896 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This autobiography follows the life of Anna Shaw (1847-1919) from her birth in Newcastle-on-Tyne, England through her presidency of the National American Woman Suffrage Association. Shaw immigrated with her genteel but financially pressed family to America in 1851. They settled first in New Bedford and then in Lawrence, Massachusetts, finally migrating in 1859 to a pioneer farmstead in northern Michigan, where Anna performed much of the subsistence labor during her father's long absences. The first part of her narrative emphasizes her efforts to gain an education and take up a ministerial career. After two years at Albion College, she attended Boston Theological School (1876-1878) and accepted a pastorate in East Dennis, Cape Cod, after graduation; later she also took temporary charge of the Congregational Church in Dennis. After her ordination had been blocked by members of the New England Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church opposed to ordaining women, Shaw was ordained by the 1880 Conference of the Methodist Protestant Church in Tarrytown, N.Y

The Whole family : a novel by William Dean Howells( Book )

7 editions published between 1908 and 2007 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most fascinating experiments in American literature resulted in The Whole Family. This unusual composite novel numbers among its twelve authors such luminaries as William Dean Howells, Henry James, Mary E. Wilkins Freeman, and Elizabeth Stuart Phelps." "The idea for this collaborative venture originated with Howells in 1906. Under the guidance of Elizabeth Jordan, the energetic editor of Harper's Bazar (as it was then known), each of the authors was invited to write a successive chapter in a story Howells envisioned as a definitive depiction of American family life. But the original plan underwent a dramatic reversal with a controversial chapter by Freeman. From that point, The Whole Family became a more involved story of family misunderstandings and rivalries that actually mirrored the rivalries of the contributors themselves." "Alfred Bendixen's lively introduction offers the first accurate and complete account of the creation of this remarkable novel - uncovering new facts and revealing the turmoil out of which it was shaped. June Howard's preface provides an additional contextual and critical perspective."--BOOK JACKET
