Excerpt from Great Authors in Their Youth This is a book of beginnings, since it tells of the early life of some great authors. Yet it is the beginning that counts, says the French proverb. In these records of youthful days we come closer to the things that make one life different from another; we watch the troubles and triumphs of childhood that teach one novelist the story of David Copperfield's varied fortunes and another the strange eventful history of Jane Eyre; we wander with one young poet through the quiet country of 'The Brook," and with another boyish lover of romance over the rugged hillsides of the land of "Marmion." The stored-up memories of their early years have always been the true treasure-house of great authors, and to know the story of their youth is to have the key to an enchanted door. In gathering together whatever has gone to the making of this book of youthful lives for youthful readers the writer has gleaned in many fields.

No area of the United States was untouched by the Great Depression, but the severity in which people experienced those significant years depended in large part on where in the nation they lived. While dust choked the life out of Americans in the plains, apples grew in abundance in the Northwest. Unemployment-driven poverty robbed urban dwellers of hearth and home, while Upper-plains farm women traded eggs and chickens like money. This bibliography describes the youth literature and relevant resources written about the Great Depression, all categorized by geographical location. Students, educators, historians, and writers can use this book to find literature specific to their state or region, gaining a greater understanding of what the Great Depression was like in their locale. The Great Depression was a pivotal period in our nation's history. This annotated bibliography guides readers to biographies; oral histories, memoirs, and recollections; photograph collections; fiction and nonfiction books; picture books; international resources; and other reference sources. The Works Progress Administration (WPA) state guides are included, as well as literature about the federal theater, arts, and music projects. A comprehensive listing of museums and state historical societies complement this reference. For readers interested in learning about the Great Depression, this is a must-have resource.

"Women's History Sources: A Guide to Archives and Manuscript Collections in the United States" is a brilliant 2-volume survey of historical archives which proves the abundance of sources on the female past. Culled from a potential source list of 11,000 repositories, the editor and her associates surveyed the 7,000 replies to their initial questionnaire and identified 2,000 repositories with pertinent collections. The guide offers a state-by-state survey of holdings pertaining to women in a great variety of archives, ranging from large and well-known repositories, and state, county, and local historical societies, to organizational and labor union archives as well as those of educational, religious, and charitable institutions. It is meticulously arranged and was carefully verified. Thousands of entries, which identify hitherto unknown women, provide invaluable biographical sketches, which were checked against a 25,000-name authority file created from the standard biographical guides. The guide is not only an immediately useful reference work, but it is also a compendium of the lives, activities, and experiences of American women. The highly professional Index (vol. 2) is a fine topic guide to every aspect of U.S. social history. It not only enables the researcher to identify thousands of women, state by state and city by city, but it also leads one to the organizations and institutions with which these women were connected. The archives of this nation contain unmined treasures of information on women in their public and private roles-active, organizing, innovating to meet society's unmet needs. The Women's History Sources guide will be an indispensable tool for the scholar, the teacher, the genealogist, and for all those interested in recovering the hidden past of women. -- Gerda Lerner, University of Wisconsin--Madison.
