Maria Montessori Sails to America, a private diary, 1913
During her first voyage to America at the end of 1913, Montessori kept a diary in which she dwelled on the major changes that had taken place in her life in that year and looked forward to what her visit to America might have in store for her and her work. Maria Montessori demonstrates her powers of observation and describes life on board with relish and wit. The diary also gives a rare insight into her budding relationship with her adolescent son Mario, who had come to live with her earlier that year. Hardcover. Number of pages: 59.
