During the Great Depression, a WPA program known as the Federal Writers' Project hired scores of indigent writers to journey along back roads, wander through small towns, and meet local farmers and workers. The guidebooks that resulted are brilliant, evocative studies of local history and custom and a priceless record of 1930s America. Illustrated.
