Down on the farm : a picture treasury of country life in America in the good old days by Stewart H Holbrook( Book )

2 editions published in 1954 in English and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nothing in the American scene has changed so much in the last half-century as country life. The old-time farm as most of us knew it -- and all that went with it -- is fast becoming a matter of the past. Almost every American has fond memories and a soft spot in his heart for the horse and buggy days down on the farm. This book is a portrait of those times, of that vanishing way of life. The pictures (photographs, advertisements, contemporary prints), selected from thousands collected from all possible sources, cover every element of rural life in all parts of the country before motor power transformed the scene. And Steward Holbrook, a farmboy himself and still farm-hearted, comments about each element and enjoys more than a chuckle or two and sheds an occasional tear as he gives the facts
The wild places; a photographic celebration of unspoiled America by Milton Rugoff( Book )

7 editions published between 1973 and 1984 in English and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Photographs of the real America, specifically the wilder partrs of the continent. While most of its wilderness has been lost, the United States is by no means so badly damaged that its citizens cannot take great pleasure from the remaining -- and still vast -- wild spaces. These tell us something of what the original pristine land was like, and even though most people seldom see such wilderness areas, they are as much a part of our vision of America as anything that man has made. Through the photographer's lenses we are introduced to them intimately, poetically, and in unexpected ways
