This classic book is the first instalment of Annie F. Johnston's eponymous children's series, "The Little Colonel". It is a semi-biographical story of a girl who becomes known as the little Colonel due to her bullying, which resonates with the personality of her grandfather, a former colonel on the confederate side. A charming and timeless tale, "The Little Colonel" would make for a great addition to any family collection, and is not to be missed by fans of Johnston's work.
