I have married a mountain woman, he wrote. "None of your puny breed of modern femininity, but a remnant left over from the heroic ages, -- a primitive woman, grand and vast of spirit, capable of true and steadfast wifehood. No sophistry about her; no knowledge even that there is sophistry. Heavens! man, do you remember the rondeaux and triolets I used to write to those pretty creatures back East. Pollyanna is a best-selling 1913 novel by Eleanor H. Porter that is now considered a classic of children's literature, with the title character's name becoming a popular term for someone with the same optimistic outlook.
This book ROCKS!!!!
Pollyanna is a wonderful story of optimism and hope. I read this aloud to my children and we all enjoyed the fun, humor and gladness the book has to offer. I find myself playing the Glad Game more and more often. We are glad we read this book and highly recommend it for anyone!
Should be required reading for every cranky unappreciative human being.
