This is a sensitive, appealing and lively biography of America’s beloved composer, Edward MacDowell, which boys and girls will take to their hearts and treasure. His Quaker beginnings, his irrepressible interest in music, his youthful triumphs abroad, his visit to the master, Franz Liszt, his romance with his pupil, the lovely Marian Nevins, their marriage and return to America, the launching of the Peterboro, New Hampshire, colony, which bears his name—these are some of the delightful stories in the rich career of America’s greatest composer.
