Women's letters : America from the Revolutionary War to the present( Book )

7 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 1,504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Historical events of the last three centuries and personal milestones in women's lives come alive through these singular correspondences, over 400 letters accompanied by over 100 photographs. In 1775, Rachel Revere tries to send financial aid to her husband, Paul, in a note that is confiscated by the British; a mid-nineteenth-century missionary describes a mastectomy performed without anesthesia; one week after JFK's assassination, Jacqueline Kennedy pens a heartfelt letter to Nikita Khrushchev; an eighteen-year-old tells her mother about her decision to have an abortion the year after Roe v. Wade; and on September 12, 2001, a schoolgirl writes a note of thanks to a New York City firefighter, asking him, "Were you afraid?"--From publisher description
The irresistible Henry House : a novel by Lisa Grunwald( Book )

18 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the mid-twentieth century in a home economics program at a prominent university, real babies are being used to teach mothering skills to young women. For a young man raised in these unlikely circumstances, finding real love and learning to trust will prove to be the work of a lifetime. From his earliest days as a "practice baby" through his adult adventures in 1960s New York City, Disney's Burbank studios, and the delirious world of the Beatles' London, Henry House remains handsome, charming, universally adored--and never entirely accessible to the many women he conquers but can never entirely trust--Résumé de l'éditeur
Letters of the century : America, 1900-1999( Book )

5 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in English and held by 1,442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Encapsulating the people, places, events and trends that shaped our nation during the last 100 years, this book arrives in time to be a major gift book of the season. Beautifully illustrated and produced, it offers more than 400 letters from both famous figures and ordinary citizens, creating an extraordinary chronicle of our history and an essential volume for any family library. A collection of fascinating letters by Americans, famous and obscure, chronicles a century of life in the United States, from Mark Twain's side-splitting, hilarious letter of complaint to the head of Western Union, to an ecstatic letter from a young Charlie Chaplin upon receiving his first movie contract, to Einstein's warning to Roosevelt about atomic warfare, and a young Bill Gates begging hobbyists not to share software, so innovators can make some money, as well as Mark Rudd's "generation gap" letter to the president of Columbia University during the student riots of the 60s. "Immediate and evocative, letters witness and fasten history, catching events as they happen," write Lisa Grunwald and Stephen J. Adler in their introduction to this remarkable book. In these pages, our century's most celebrated figures become everyday people and everyday people become part of history. Here is a veteran's wrenching letter left at the Vietnam Wall, a poignant correspondence between two women trying to become mothers, a heart-breaking letter from an AIDS sufferer telling his parents how he wants to be buried, an indignant e-mail from a PC user to his on-line server. "Letters," write Grunwald and Adler, "give history a voice." Arranged chronologically by decade, illustrated with over 100 photographs, Letters of the Century creates an extraordinary chronicle of our history, through the voices of the men and women who have lived its greatest moments.

Women's letters : America from the Revolutionary War to the present( Recording )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sure to be required reading not just for devotees of women's history or the fine art of letter writing but also for surveying the broad scope of American history itself, this book offers an intimate view of that great expanse from 1775 to 2004. As with their previous volume, Letters of the Century: America, 1900-1999, [the authors] have arranged the letters chronologically rather than by theme, prefacing the various decades with brief overviews of major events of that time. Each letter is transcribed from the original without additions or deletions, and with an editorial introduction to set the context and explain any terms that might be unknown to the modern reader. Letters selected range from the sage advice contained in a mother's 1781 letter to her soon-to-be-orphaned 14-year-old son, future President of the United States, Andrew Jackson; to a 2004 email by Wall Street Journal correspondent Farnaz Fassihi, which, widely circulated on the Internet, gave people a disturbingly personal picture of the chaos in Iraq.-Library Journal
