Lucy Maud Montgomery, OBE (b. November 30, 1874, Clifton, Prince Edward Island – d. April 24, 1942, Toronto).
A brief mid-life memoir by the creator of the Anne of Green Gables series.
"Lucy Maud Montgomery, the creator of Anne of Green Gables, wrote this charming autobiographical memoir in mid-career. It is the most complete account of her childhood and early years as a writer. It originally appeared as a series of magazine articles in 1917.
'The Alpine Path' refers to her long climb to success. She began in childhood and never wavered in her resolve to become an accomplished professional writer. The remarkable success that came with the publication of Anne of Green Gables (which was rejected by many publishers), its sequels and her other works, was the result of many years of hard steady work.
All those who have enjoyed the Anne books will be fascinated by this intimate background story by the author. Those who love Prince Edward Island will be delighted by her descriptions of the countryside and its people. No one who reads The Alpine Path can fail to be impressed by the personal appeal of L.M. Montgomery."- from the rear.
