Another challenge

(and, with luck, a few more posts about books in the new year...)

Becky's Nineteenth-Century Women Writers Challenge was too tantalizing to pass up, especially since some titles can overlap with the Decades Challenge. I've tentatively selected a half dozen children's authors, most of whom are no longer that well known (some of whom are no longer known at all...) The six are

Mary Bamford
Mary Elizabeth Brush
Mary Crowninshield
Amanda Douglas
Laura Nichols
Molly Seawell

Most wrote what could be called informational fiction -- history and/or geography woven into a narrative; several also worked their stories into loosely-connected series.
