The WPA guide to 1930s Iowa by Federal Writers Project( )

6 editions published between 1986 and 2007 in English and held by 1,836 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The WPA Guide to 1930s Iowa is a panorama of the Hawkeye State as it was during the Great Depression, but it nevertheless finds much to celebrate in the heartland of America. Nearly three dozen essays highlight Iowa's demography, economy, and culture, but the heart of the book is a detailed traveler's guide, organized as seventeen different tours that direct the reader to communities of particular social and historical interest throughout the state. Rarely has so much information about a place been gathered in a single volume. This unique book is a special invitation to share in the richness and diversity of Iowa and its people

The Florida Negro : a Federal Writers' Project legacy by Gary W McDonogh( )

The work of the FWP team, compiled from archival resources and statistical records, as well as from interviews with a wide range of Florida blacks, provides a vivid documentary description of Florida's African heritage. Reflecting a mixture of both pride and complaint in the black community, their research illuminates the world of such stellar black Floridians as Zora Neale Hurston, James Weldon Johnson, and Augusta Savage. None of this material has been published previously in the series of WPA guidebooks. Versions of the manuscript and the primary documents are in the archives of the Florida Historical Society, the P. K. Yonge Library at the University of Florida, and the Library of Congress

In September 1973, the military took power in Chile, and Ariel Dorfman, allied to deposed president Salvadore Allende, was forced to flee for his life. Feeding on Dreams is the story of the transformative decades of exile that followed. Dorfman portrays, through visceral scenes and powerful intellect, the personal and political maelstroms underlying his migrations from Buenos Aires, on the run from Pinochet "s death squads, to safe houses in Paris and Amsterdam, and eventually to America, his childhood home. And then, seventeen years after he was forced to leave, there is a yearned-for return to Chile, with an unimaginable outcome. The toll on Dorfman "s wife and two sons, the Searthquake of language that is bilingualism, and his eventual questioning of his allegiance to past and party ?all these crucibles of a life in exile are revealed with wry and startling honesty
