About the author:

Eva March Tappan was born at Blackstone, Massachusetts in 1854 and died in 1930. A Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Vassar College in 1875, she taught at Wheaton College in Massachusetts, and at several private schools. After earning both Master of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy degrees at the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Tappan became head of the English department at the English High School at Worcester, Massachusetts. During the Great War, she was asked to become an assistant editor for the United States Food Administration.

Miss Tappan dedicated the last half of her life to writing over 50 books for younger readers, then deeded her estate to form a Vassar College scholarship fund for young women. An extensive knowledge of literature had given her a talent for making simple and absorbing stories that filled the imagination with fascinating facts. Her well-written, interesting, and thorough work was recognized by schools, where her books were often used as textbooks.
