New York: Da Capo Press. Very Good+. 1977. First Paperback Edition. Softcover. 0-306-80071-3 . [some edgewear to covers (mostly rear cover), but generally a good sound clean copy]. Trade PB (B&W photographs) Novelist Caldwell and photographer Bourke-White's attempt to capture and portray "the impression and feel of America," not long after the country had emerged from the depths of the Great Depression -- and, as it happened, just before the outbreak of World War II. The pair were a married couple at the time, and "in a spirit of high adventure, they traveled from coast to coast with no set itinerary, visiting [small] towns [and] plucking names from telephone directories in search of people to photograph and interview." The resulting book juxtaposed anecdotes and photographs "rich with local color and gentle humor," with "only occasional reminders of the poverty and drought-stricken farmlands of an earlier decade." .
