"Before Scarlett" -- the Girlhood Writings of Margaret Mitchell

Hardback. A compilation of Margaret Mitchell's childhood writings. The discovery, quite by accident, of the cache of writings by M.M. was almost too good to beleive. Jane Eskridge and Wailes Thomas were sorting through a lifetime of mementos in the Atlanta home Thomas had recently inherited from his mother. They found 200 pages of short stories, fairy tales, journal entries, essays, and a one-act play penned from ages 8 through 17 by Margaret Mitchell.

In celebration of Margaret Mitchell's centenary birthday, these writings, along with rare archival pieces and photographs, are published for the first time and give you a glimpse into the soul of the young talent who would go on to write GWTW.
