Kort biografi
Alice Dalgliesh was born in Trinidad, British West Indies, to a Scottish father and English mother, and moved to England with her family at age 13. She began writing at an early age and won a writing prize from a magazine at age 14. In 1912, at age 19, she came to the USA to study kindergarten education at the Pratt Institute in New York City, and stayed for the rest of her life. She earned a bachelor's degree in education and a master's in English literature from Columbia University Teacher's College. She taught for 17 years at the Horace Mann School in Riverdale while also teaching a course in children's literature at Columbia. She regularly wrote about children's books for magazines such as Parents, Publishers Weekly, School Library Journal, and The Saturday Review. She also edited social studies textbooks for Charles Scribner's Sons, which led to an invitation to start a children's book department at the publishing firm in 1934. She served as children's book editor until her retirement in 1960.

She then became the editor of the Books for Young Readers section of The Saturday Review of Literature for several years. She began writing books in the 1920s at the urging of Louise Seaman Bechtel, then a publisher at Macmillan, and went on to produce some 40 work of fiction and nonfiction for children, and works about children's literature. Many of them were named Newbury Honor Books and Best Books of the Year, and many were illustrated by Katherine Milhous. Her most famous work is probably The Courage of Sarah Noble (1954).

Because it was written in 1954, I'll bet this book does NOT portray American Indians in a fair and respectful way. But the kids at my library need to read the pioneer fiction, so I'll give it a shot.

Giles, Constance and Damaris Hopkins are all passengers aboard the crowded Mayflower, journeying to the New World to start a new life. Things get a little more cramped when their baby brother Oceanus is born during the passage. However, when they arrive, there are even worse challenges to face as the Pilgrims are subjected to hunger, cold, and sickness that put their small colony in great danger. With the help of the Native Americans though, they might just be able to survive their first year in this strange land--and have a November harvest to celebrate for generations!… (mer)

In 1707, young Sarah Noble and her father traveled through the wilderness to build a new for their family. "Keep up your courage, Sarah Noble", her mother had said, but Sarah found that it was not always easy to feel brave inside. The dark woods were full of animals and Indians, too, and Sarah was only eight!

The true story of Sarah's journey is inspiring. And as she cares for her father and befriends her Indian neighbors, she learns that to be afraid and to be brave is the greatest courage of all.… (mer)
