His work was initially published in England before it was published in America. He is highly regarded for his realistic depictions of rural life and his command of American colloquial speech. His work frequently employed settings from rural life in New England in the early twentieth century, using them to examine complex social and philosophical themes. One of the most popular and critically respected American poets of the twentieth century,Frost was honored frequently during his lifetime, receiving four Pulitzer Prizes for Poetry. He became one of America's rare "public literary figures, almost an artistic institution. "He was awarded the Congressional Gold Medal in 1960 for his poetic works. On July 22, 1961, Frost was named poet laureate of Vermont. This book of Frost poetry is from the personal collection of Jean Lee Latham and is doubled signed by her. She was a personal friend of Frost and they both had homes in the Miami, Florida Area.

She attended West Virginia Wesleyan College and received an A.B. in 1925. Her first book for children was The Story of Eli Whitney.
