'From 1922 to 1925, the Nation's managing editor, Ernest Gruening, persuaded 48 American authors to write about their native states for the magazine. This singularly valuable volume. . . reprints all the essays, plus an article on New York City.'--Publishers Weekly A remarkable portrait of the 1920s, These United States features the insights of some of the most prominent men and women of American letters--among them, Willa Cather, H. L. Mencken, Theodore Dreiser, Sinclair Lewis, and W. E. B. Du Bois. The book presents a unique series of 49 articles as well as a generous sampling of stereoscopic photographs from the period.
