This early work by Alice Hegan Rice was originally published in 1902. Later dramatised in a Hollywood adaptation of the same name, Mrs. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch is the most famous of the author's creations and was a national bestseller. Rice went on to write over twenty books and was also highly regarded for her short story contributions to various magazines. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions.
