Most widely held works by Margaret Bourke-White
You have seen their faces by Erskine Caldwell ( Book )
26 editions published between 1937 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the middle years of the Great Depression, Erskine Caldwell and photographer Margaret Bourke-White spent eighteen months traveling across the back roads of the Deep South - from South Carolina to Arkansas - to document the living conditions of the sharecropper. Their collaboration resulted in You Have Seen their Faces, a graphic portrayal of America's desperately poor rural underclass. First published in 1937, it is a classic comparable to Jacob Riis's How the Other Half Lives, and James Agee and Walker Evans's Let Us Now Praise Famous Men, which it preceded by more than three years."--BOOK JACKET

Margaret Bourke-White : the photography of design, 1927-1936 by Stephen Bennett Phillips ( Book )
3 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 778 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."--BOOK JACKET

Tobacco road by Erskine Caldwell ( Book )
2 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 304 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 )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 110 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."--Jacket
