The Game Of Life And How To Play It

by Florence Scovel Shinn

Florence Scovel Shinn, an illustrator living in New York City, became a teacher of New Thought after a divorce.

The Game of Life and How to Play It is her first book, and is remarkable for being written by a woman and meant for a genteel female audience.
