Summary
This book is a collection of beloved stories that have comprised an important part of the fabric of American culture, from the earliest days of our nation to the twentieth century. Some of the stories have been long regarded as literary classics, while others are lesser known but well worth discovering. The carefully selected stories, each preceded by an illuminating headnote, powerfully illustrate the varied richness of our national literature and history. --from publisher's description
