A sparkling biography of the first great comedienne of the American stage, Lotta Crabtree, who enchanted audiences across the country for twenty five years. Miss Jackson has captured in her story the very essence of the American mood of that period,- the fever for new frontiers, the riches of the earth. Tiny red-headed Lotta and her mother were good troupers, and their story is the story of the American stage of their day. Anyone interested in the theatre, particularly girls who want to make the stage a career, should read it for background; for other readers it is a delightful costume piece.
