This is, in every way, an extraordinary book, and it is no light claim to say it will stand, along with Agee's and Evans' record of the dirt farmers of Alabama, and George Tice's record of the Amish of Pennsylvania, as one of the great odes to an America that has passed before our eyes almost without comment or notice. It is a valiant, indeed a brilliant, effort to make the past tangible, to bring it back to life. These images, and the brief but trenchant text that accompanies them, will stay with you for life. It is among the most beautiful and moving books this company has ever attempted.
