Mark Twain's America by Bernard De Voto( Book )

21 editions published between 1932 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 706 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginning in 1835, the birth year of Samuel Clemens, and extending through the Gilded Age, Mark Twain's America depicts the vigorous social and historical forces that produced the creator of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. Bernard DeVoto catches a people moving west: Twain's own family drifting down the Ohio, emigrants of every stripe, the famous and the obscure. Answering genteel critics such as Van Wyck Brooks, who blamed the American frontier for stifling Twain's genius, DeVoto shows that, in fact, Twain's early days in Nevada and California made a writer of him. Mark Twain's America, first published in 1932, enriched by humor and supernatural slave lore, is an enduring work of American literary and cultural criticism
The epic of America by James Truslow Adams( Book )

2 editions published between 1947 and 1956 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Epic of America is not a tangled chronicle of dates, campaigns, and battles. Instead it portrays the spirit of the American people through the more momentous episodes in their country's history and through brief but brilliant biographical snapshots of their leaders. In this outstanding one-volume history the author consistently shows what life held for the typical American of city, town and frontier. In short, this book presents a true panorama of American life from Columbus to Franklin D. Roosevelt."--Page 4 of cover
