Episode description: Though she and her work have fallen into relative obscurity, 19th-century New York writer Marietta Holley was once hailed as "the female Mark Twain." Her books—which actually outsold Twain's for a time—are written in a distinctive colloquial style that remains fresh and strong, and their stories and themes helped shaped the early days of the American women's rights movement.
