Prose for children by the little-known Czech writer, published after her return from exile in the United States, and issued here for children "at home and in America." Hasmandová (1888–1930) stemmed from the small village of Huštěnovice near the border with Slovakia. She was a writer and editor who at some point immigrated to the United States, while always maintaining close ties with her home village. She died after falling from a horse.
