You have seen their faces by Erskine Caldwell( Book )

32 editions published between 1937 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Margaret Bourke-White : the photography of design, 1927-1936 by Stephen Bennett Phillips( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 766 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Margaret Bourke-White is best known as the first staff photographer of Fortune magazine, the first female war correspondent, and the woman whose photographs made the covers of Life magazine famous. But before she began traveling throughout the world to document history in the making, Bourke-White was creating evocative abstract photographs of American industry and architecture." "Margaret Bourke-White: Photography of Design, 1927-1936 is an exploration of the first decade of the career of a remarkable photographer. An essay by Stephen Bennett Phillips chronicles these years and interprets the work produced, much of which has never before been published. This book is the companion to the nationwide traveling exhibition of the same name, organized by The Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C."--Jacket

Tobacco road by Erskine Caldwell( Book )

2 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 311 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

Through an American lens : Hungary, 1938 by Margaret Bourke-White( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Noted Hungarian historian Karoly Szerencses provides brief, steam-of-consciousness essays to accompany each photo. Acting as the photographer's fictive guide, Szerencses introduces "Margaret" to each of her photos, providing her with an encapsulated historical background of the subject and in the process revealing the soul and conscience of the nation in 1938. As he says in farewell to Margaret at the end of their "tour": "... please remember us, our terrible fears; recite a prayer for us so that we may say, for the very last time: they caught us by surprise, they meant to annihilate us, yet we managed to survive." --Book Jacket

Train to Pakistan by Khushwant Singh( Book )

5 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the summer of 1947, India was splitting apart. Millions of Muslims were moving north and east to what would become Pakistan and Bangladesh. Millions of Sikhs and Hindus were moving out of those areas to India. The British, the colonial overlords who had been ruling over the country for over a century, were leaving for good. Civil war was threatening to break out not along territorial borders but over religious ideals. Mano Majra was one village close to the Partition between India and Pakistan thought to be untouched by all this turmoil. It believed itself to be a place where Muslims and Sikhs could live together in peace as they had for centuries. Until one day the goods train arrived not with supplies but carrying the dead bodies of a thousand dead refugees. Suddenly the residents of Mano Majra found themselves thrust into the middle of the whole conflict and quickly became emblematic of the conflict

Portrait of myself by Margaret Bourke-White( Book )

20 editions published between 1963 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the story of the internationally acclaimed American woman Margaret Bourke-White, who for over thirty years made photographic history: as the first photographer to see the artistic and storytelling possibilities in American industry, as the first to write social criticism with a lens, and as the most distinguished and venturesome foreign correspondent-with-a-camera to report wars, politics and social and political revolution on three continents. In this poignant autobiography, Bourke-White details her fight against Parkinson's disease, and recounts tales of her struggles to master her art and craft, of photographing Stalin, Gandhi and many other notables, of being torpedoed off North Africa while reporting World War II, of flying combat missions, of photographing the dread murder camps of Nazi Germany, of touring Tobacco Road to produce the book You Have Seen Their Faces with Erskine Caldwell (whom she later married), of adventures--and wonderful picture-taking--in the mines of South Africa, in the frozen North, in war-torn Korea. Illustrated throughout with over 70 of Margaret Bourke-White's fine photographs, this is the great life story of a great American, greatly yet modestly told
