Emma McChesney and Co

Edna Ferber, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Show Boat and Giant, achieved her first great success with a series of stories she published in American Magazine between 1911 and 1913. The stories feature Emma McChesney, a smart, savvy, stylish, divorced mother, and Midwest traveling sales representative for T. A. Buck's Featherloom skirts and petticoats. With one hand on her sample case and the other fending off advances from salesmen, hotel clerks, and other predators, Emma holds on tightly to her reputation. Her experience has taught her that it's best to stick to roast beef, medium, rather than experiment with fancy sauces and exotic dishes. Emma McChesney and Company is the final volume of three chronicling the travels and trials of Emma McChesney.
