520 |a"Alternating chapters of historical background and literary analysis, this study argues that postbellum series books inspired young women by illustrating the ways in which girls could participate in social change. The book adds to the existing scholarship on girls' culture by tracing the shifting social ideologies of girlhood throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries"--Provided by publisher.
