Octavo. cloth. Deland's long literary career started inauspiciously enough as a verse writer for a greeting card company. Her first book The Old Garden (1886) was a collection of poems. This, her autobiography, has been called as fine a work as anything she ever wrote and was published when she was eighty-four. Between these Deland wrote short stories - the tales of inhabitants of bucolic "Old Chester" - and novels, the best of which were the realistic John Ward, Preacher and The Awakening of Helena Ritchie. In all she wrote twenty-five volumes, each one of which was dedicated to her husband.She was elected to the National Institute of Arts and Letters in 1925. Long since part of the passing parade, her work now relegated to the limbo of obscurity, Deland's life is still worth the reading "as a record of the many transformations of American social history during the nearly eighty years of her adult life" in which she made "a modest but permanent contribution to the long history of resistance to intolerance and cruelty in America" (Dictionary of American Biography).
