This book has been compiled by some of Elizabeths friends in an effort to imply the autobiography that she did not live to write.Smart sold her first poem -- for a dollar -- at the age of 10. The following year, confined by illness to bed for 6 months, she bagan what was to be a lifelong habit of squeezing bits of the day into notebooks. These notebooks provided the raw material from which she worked -- ideas, thoughts, feelings, observations, story ideas and digressions.[First two paragraphs of the introduction]
