Product Overview

This controversial biography of the founder of the Christian Science church was serialized in McClure''s Magazine in 1907-8 and published as a book the next year. It disappeared almost overnight and has been difficult to find ever since. Although a Canadian mewspaperwoman named Georgine Milmine collected the material and was credited as the author, "The Life Of Mary Baker G. Eddy" was actually written by Willa Cather, an editor at McClure''s at that time.

In his introduction to this Bison Book edition, David Stouck reveals new evidence of Cather''s authorship of "The Life of Mary Baker G. Eddy." He discusses her fidelity to facts and her concern with psychology and philosophy that would take creative form later on. Indeed, this biography contains "some of the finest portrait sketches and reflections on human nature that Willa Cather would ever write."
