《太阳溪农场的丽贝卡》是一本建立了美国成功精神的魔书,献给处于陌生环境或逆境中的孩子们。美国著名作家、教育家凯特·维珍的代表作。它被马克·吐温评价为“绝好的、温暖的、令人满意的作品”,没有说教,没有理论,只是通过小姑娘——丽贝卡成长的故事,来阐释关于人生的哲理。美国国前总统里根,音乐天才迈克尔 杰克逊,乃至科学巨人霍金等人都曾把丽贝卡当做自己生活的表率,以丽贝卡的生活态度作为自己逆境中的灯塔。《太阳溪农场的丽贝卡》被纽约国家图书馆评为“人生励志之书世纪第一名”,被亚马逊书店选为“20世纪对人类心志有重大影响的50”之一。

此书是美国中学生的“手边书”,讲述了19世纪末美国一个小镇上的女孩丽贝卡的成长故事。丽贝卡是一个快乐的、对一切都充满好奇心的女孩,她因家境贫困,离开了童年生活的太阳溪农场,前往利佛保罗姨妈家里上学。新环境与新朋友改变着她,而她也用热情去改变周围——如饥似渴地吸收新知识,为了帮助朋友前去推销三百块肥皂,勇敢地和辱骂她朋友的米妮作斗争,为了讨得米兰达姨妈的喜欢,又努力使自己变得温柔娴静……丽贝卡就这样长大了

Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm is a classic American 1903 children's novel by Kate Douglas Wiggin that tells the story of Rebecca Rowena Randall and her two stern aunts in the fictional village of Riverboro, Maine. Rebecca's joy for life inspires her aunts, but she faces many trials in her young life, gaining wisdom and understanding. Wiggin wrote a sequel, New Chronicles of Rebecca. Eric Wiggin, a great nephew of the author, wrote updated versions of several Rebecca books, including a concluding story. The story was adapted for the theatrical stage, and was filmed three times, once with Shirley Temple in the title role.

凯特·道格拉斯·维珍(1856-1923),美国著名作家、教育家,1878年在美国旧金山创立了第一家免费托儿所,并负责幼师培训工作。生平大部分时间都致力于文学创作工作,代表作有《阳光溪农场的丽贝卡》、《朴素的故事》、《佩内洛普的成长史》等。另外,她还和姐姐合作撰写了一些著名的教育学论著。1923年8月24日,她在英国的哈罗镇去世。同年,她的自传《我的记忆花园》出版。

Kate Douglas Wiggin (September 28, 1856 – August 24, 1923) was an American educator and author of children's stories, most notably the classic children's novel Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm. She started the first free kindergarten in San Francisco in 1878 (the Silver Street Free Kindergarten). With her sister during the 1880s, she also established a training school for kindergarten teachers. Kate Wiggin devoted her adult life to the welfare of children in an era when children were commonly thought of as cheap labour.

The old stage coach was rumbling along the dusty road that runs from Maplewood to Riverboro. The day was as warm as midsummer, though it was only the middle of May, and Mr. Jeremiah Cobb was favoring the horses as much as possible, yet never losing sight of the fact that he carried the mail. The hills were many, and the reins lay loosely in his hands as he lolled back in his seat and extended one foot and leg luxuriously over the dashboard. His brimmed hat of worn felt was well pulled over his eyes, and he revolved a quid of tobacco in his left cheek.
