The beginners of a nation; a history of the source and rise of the earliest English settlements in America, with special reference to the life and character of the people by Edward Eggleston( Book )

50 editions published between 1809 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 957 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

American novelist and historian, Eggleston's novels depicting early life in southern Indiana have been widely read. In this book his aim has been to make the pages reflect the character of the age in which the English colonies were begun, and the traits of the colonists, and to bring into relief the social, political, intellectual, and religious forces that promoted emigration. It does not pretend to be the usual account of all the events attending early colonization; it is rather a history in which the succession of cause and effect is the main topic, a history of the dynamics of colony-planting in the first half of the seventeenth century. Who were the beginners of English life in America? What propulsions sent them for refuge to a wilderness? What visions beckoned them to undertake the founding of new states? What manner of men were their leaders? And what is the story of their hopes, their experiments, and their disappointments? These are the questions Eggleston attempts to answer in this volume. - Publisher
Roxy by Edward Eggleston( Book )

50 editions published between 1878 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 933 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published in 1878, Roxy was one of Eggleston's best selling novels. Its heroine, Roxy Adams, is a religious woman whose faith is sorely tested when her husband embarks on an affair that results in an illegitimate child.

The Hoosier school-boy by Edward Eggleston( Book )

84 editions published between 1881 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 862 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This 1883 juvenile novel, a sequel to Eggleston's first and best-known novel, The Hoosier School-Master , is based on the experiences of Eggleston's brother as a teacher.

The faith doctor; a story of New York by Edward Eggleston( Book )

51 editions published between 1891 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 842 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the tale of the rise and fall of a gullible young woman who comes under the tutelage of a "quack," a practitioner of faith healing. Phillida firmly believes that she has the gift of healing and the reader finds herself wanting to warn her that she is about to unwittingly harm herself and others. The polemic against this form of medical charlatanism is only thinly veiled in the "art" of the romance form in which it is written. The plot itself is much less intriguing than the cast of characters Eggleston creates to expose the methods of late nineteenth century spiritual mesmerism as a means of public exploitation. --litmed.med.nyu.edu
