The author, Sarah Knowles Bolton, (1841-1916) was born in Farmington, Connecticut to parents John Segar Knowles and Mary Elizabeth Miller Knowles. At age 11 she met the writer Harriet Beecher Stowe. In 1866 she married Charles E. Bolton, a merchant and philanthropist. She wrote extensively for the press, was one of the first corresponding secretaries of the Woman's national temperance union, was associate editor of the Boston "Congregationalist" (1878-81), and travelled for two years in Europe, studying profit-sharing, female higher education, and other social questions. Her writings encourage readers to improve the world about them through faith and hard work. Between 1863 and 1902 Sarah Knowles Bolton wrote many poems, children's books and biographical sketches. Her works also include: The Present Problem (1874), Lives of Poor Boys Who Became Famous (1885), Famous American Authors (1887), Lives of Girls Who Became Famous (1914) and Sarah K.
