"The world saw only one book by Margaret Mitchell published in her lifetime, the incomparable Gone With the Wind, the most popular novel in American history. Upon her death in 1949, her personal papers, almost all other writing, and even the original typescript of Gone With the Wind were destroyed. Now, sixty years later, the impossible has happened: The world has another story from Margaret Mitchell. Better still, it's a delight, a fitting predecessor to America's most beloved epic novel." "A spirited tale of love and honor on a doomed South Pacific island called Laysen, Lost Laysen would be justly praised as a charming effort by a remarkable young talent if it were its author's only work. But it isn't, of course, and Lost Laysen also enchants because of the many fascinating ways it foretells Gone With the Wind: in its two central male characters, one a gentleman and the other more rough-hewn, who vie for the attention of a feisty, independent-minded woman, and who will go to any lengths to defend her honor; in its re-creation of a vanished world; and in its unforgettable ending." "The real-life romance at the heart of Lost Laysen's discovery is as enthralling as any work of fiction. Margaret Mitchell gave the story, handwritten in two lined notebooks, to a young suitor, Henry Love Angel. Angel put the notebooks away for safekeeping, just as he put away all of Mitchell's intimate letters to him, as well as their treasured photographs taken over the years. Well over half a century passed before Henry Love Angel's son, realizing what had been passed down to him, brought the story, the letters, and the photos to Atlanta's Road to Tara Museum. Nationally respected Margaret Mitchell historian Debra Freer masterfully weaves Margaret Mitchell's never-before-seen letters and photographs into a fascinating introduction that tells the story of Mitchell's relationship with Henry Love Angel and puts the writing of Lost Laysen into its proper context."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Margaret Mitchell's photos, writings and letters were destroyed when she passed away in 1949. However, in the mid 90's, a previously undiscovered manuscript, letters and photos were turned in to The Tara Museum. "Lost Laysen" is a compilation of these previously undiscovered gems, including a story written by Margaret when she was 16 years old. It's supposed to parallel "Gone with the Wind" in some areas, but don't get too excited if you don't see many of those parallels. ( )

Not too long ago the world had thought that Margaret Mitchell had only 1 story to tell. With the discovery of Henry Love Angel's cache of her letters, pictures and two notebooks we have been given insight into a period of Margaret's life that would shape her future. This book is a collection of those very items.

The letters and pictures have provided us an insight into "Peg's" style, attitude, candor, and writing. The notebooks ended up being a delightful little story called "Lost Laysen" which also contains many similarities to her masterpiece "Gone with the Wind".

Being a huge "GWTW" fan, this was a must read for me and I enjoyed every page. It is sad to think that this story is all that remains of the many that she probably wrote before her one novel, yet it is an enjoyable read from her at the young age of 16. We can only imagine what other tales she had to tell . . . ( )

In this edition the story "Lost Laysen" is told first. I liked that story, short, to the point about a theme that is universal: an impossible love. What I found very impressive is that Mitchell wrote it at such a young age.

The part about Mitchell with pictures and information about her life I found not so interesting. As a person this writer did not interest me, so reading about her life, her passion was quite hard. ( )
