Most widely held works by Erskine Caldwell
Tobacco road by Erskine Caldwell( Book )

455 editions published between 1930 and 2014 in 26 languages and held by 5,702 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A tale of violence and sex among rural poor in the American South, the novel was highly controversial in its time. It is the story of Georgia sharecropper Jeeter Lester and his family, who are trapped by the bleak economic conditions of the Depression as well as by their own limited intelligence and destructive sexuality. Its tragic ending is almost foreordained by the characters' inability to change their lives. Caldwell's skillful use of dialect and his plain style made the book one of the best examples of literary naturalism in contemporary American fiction. The novel was adapted as a successful play in 1933

You have seen their faces by Erskine Caldwell( Book )

Erskine Caldwell and Margaret Bourke-White have combined their considerable talents to produce an incisive, sensitive statement about the relation between the poverty of the people and the depletion of the land in the Deep South. In a powerful and informal style, Erskine Caldwell explores the reasons behind the deterioration of what was once the land where cotton was king. And Margaret Bourke-White's superb photographs capture the essence of the day-to-day existence of the people in this land, which no words, however eloquent, can convey. - Back cover
Trouble in July by Erskine Caldwell( Book )

145 editions published between 1940 and 2014 in 18 languages and held by 1,330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through the summer twilight in the Depression-era South, word begins to circulate of a black man accosting a white woman. In no time the awful forces of public opinion and expediency goad the separate fears and frustrations of a small southern community into the single-mindedness of a mob. Erskine Caldwell shows the lynching of Sonny Clark through many eyes. Caldwell reserves some of his most powerful passages for the few who truly held Clark's life in their hands but let it go: people like Sheriff Jeff McCurtain, who did nothing to disperse the mob; Harvey Glenn, who found Clark hiding and turned him in; and Katy Barlow, who withdrew her false charge of rape only after Clark was dead

Meet one of Erskine Caldwell's most memorable characters: the philandering, murderous itinerant preacher, Semon Dye. Part allegory, part tall tale, and with a good measure of old frontier humor, Journeyman tells how Dye mysteriously arrives in Rocky Comfort, Georgia, and inside of a week nearly tears the small community apart. As devilish as he is divine, Dye helps Rocky Comfort's citizens to rationalize their vices and weaknesses, and then uses their flaws to his own advantage. Offering no forgiveness for their actions and no justification for his own, Dye confronts the people of Rocky Comfort with their own sins as he gambles, drinks, carouses, and fights along with them. Culminating in a tumultuous, ecstatic revival, Journeyman is filled with insights into human nature and the physical and emotional aspects of religious fervor
