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

6 editions published between 1986 and 2007 in English and held by 1,826 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

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

The ocean highway : New Brunswick, New Jersey to Jacksonville, Florida by Federal Writers' Project( Book )

9 editions published between 1938 and 2016 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To follow the course of the Ocean Highway along the shore of the Atlantic New Jersey to Florida is like taking a living course in American history. You will journey through romantic legend-haunted regions like the Dismal Swamp (V.A. and N.C.); past such historical spots as Tangier Island, still guarding its ancient independence as it did in the War of 1812. You will pass the Georgia scene of Julia Peterkin's novel "Black Skin" and "Scarlet Sister Mary"; and the house which was the setting for George Alfred Townsend's story of antebellum days in Maryland, "The Entailed Hat". From the road across Butler's Island you can see the house where Fanny Kemble, the English actress, kept her unhappy diary as the wife of Pierce Butler. Also contains an excerpt from one of the earliest descriptions of the North Carolina coast by an English person
