The life stories of undistinguished americans as told by themselves: Expanded edition

Hamilton Holt, Werner Sollors

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Hamilton Holt, editor of The Independent, collected these touching autobiographies of ordinary people-new immigrants and sharecroppers, cooks and fishermen, women and men working in sweatshops, in the city, and on the land. First published in 1906, and reissued a decade ago, this new edition of Life Stories of Undistinguished Americans is expanded to include lives Holt did not include in his original selection, as well as a new preface by Werner Sollors.
