The true diversity of the American experience comes to life in this superlative collection.
"A True History of the Captivity and Restoration of Mrs. Mary Rowlandson" (1682), perhaps the first American bestseller, recounts this thirty-nine-year-old woman s harrowing months as the captive of Narragansett Indians.
"The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin" (1771 1789), the most famous of all American autobiographies, gives a lively portrait of a chandler s son who became a scientist, inventor, educator, diplomat, humorist and a Founding Father of this land.
"Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass "(1845), the gripping slave narrative that helped change the course of American history, reveals the true nature of the black experience in slavery.
"Old Times on the Mississippi "(1875), Mark Twain s unforgettable account of a riverboat pilot s life, established his signature style and shows us the metamorphosis of a man into a writer.
"Four Autobiographical Narratives" (1900 1902), published in the "Atlantic Monthly" by Zitkala-Sa (Red Bird), also known as Gertrude Bonnin, provide us with a voice too seldom heard: a Native American woman fighting for her culture in the white man s world.
Edited and with an Introduction by William L. Andrews and a New Afterword"
