This sequel to Louisa May Alcott's Little Women and Little Men chronicles the return of the classmates of Plumfield, Jo's school for boys. Ten years after the events of Little Men, readers reencounter Nat, the orphaned street musician, now a conservatory student; restless Dan, back from the gold mines of California; business-minded Tom, a reluctant medical student; sailor Emil, home from the sea; and other old friends. Alcott's sensitive and sympathetic portrayals of young adults make her novels a delight for readers of all ages.
