Anonymous More than 1 year ago
Crevecoeur's Letters from an American Farmer covers a wide range of topics from the life of the farmer and the lives of the fishermen of Nantucket to slavery, immigration, the Revolution, and what it meant/means to be American. His work provided me with interesting insight into 18th century America, especially knowing that it was a popular and influential work around the time it was first published. It is certainly worth reading.
