Overview

The Life Stories Of Undistinguished Americans As Told By Themselves / Edition 1

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.
