Abstract/Description: "Because the writings of such an author as Mrs. Fisher would be helpful to students of regional America, and also because the writer of this paper has a parallel regional background, Dorothy Canfield Fisher seemed a particularily interesting subject for a bio-bibliography. She was a prolific writer, publishing ten novels, many books about the education of children and adults, stories for children, and innumerable short stories and articles. In addition she served on the original committee of selection for the Book-of-the-Month Club for twenty-five years. Family and academic life in the middle-West, and experiences garnered during her travels abroad are reflected in many of her stories, but the major portion of her writings is concerned with Vermont and New England. It is beyond the scope of this paper to include all the literary or critical works by Dorothy Canfield Fisher. The present study endeavors to give the reader a resumé of the events in Mrs. Fisher's life and their influence on her writing as evinced only in her novels, together with a critical evaluation of these works as found in contemporary reviews"--Introduction.
