Mrs. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch

Mrs. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch  (1903) 
by Alice Hegan Rice
A 1901 novella by American author Alice Hegan Rice {writing as Alice Caldwell Hegan], telling of a southern family's humorously coping with poverty. The title character is a widow with several daughters—named after the continents, because she thinks that geographical names are refined—and an employed young son.

The book was highly popular on its release, and has been adapted to a play and to several films. Excerpted from Mrs. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
