Please try again later. This is such a simple yet revealing book about what life was and meant for so many people in the s. I love the "undistinguished Americans" line in the title because it is exactly that, the people that made up the daily threads of American life, who thanks to their hard work too we are the country we've become.
Every story is particular and reveals surprising details of their daily lives. Note, the book is a reprint on demand of the original book great way to save paper btw , so the pages look like they are scanned and the font is really big at first when I received it I thought I had mistakenly ordered a "large print" book.
Wonderful and moving stories. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase.
The life stories of undistinguished Americans, as told by themselves
I ordered this on my kindle, and the stories were very interesting. One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. This book should truly be required reading for all Americans. It is the story of us. It is an awesome reminder that America is a land full of immigrants and that even though the American Dream seems harder to achieve these days, these stories remind us that with hard work and perseverance, dreams can still come true in The Land of Opportunity.
