Originally published in 1932, Caldwell's novel told the story of the Lester family, poor Georgia sharecroppers who no longer farmed the land, but lived by whatever means possible. Caldwell's picture of the rural South challenged notions of the dignified and polite Antebellum South and depicted an image that was grotesque, violent, and morally bankrupt. Southern readers immediately found Caldwell's novel needlessly exaggerated and offensive, while Northern critics read his story as an indictment upon a failed Southern economic system in dire need of reform.

I Am a Fugitive from a Georgia Chain Gang! is the amazing true story of one man's search for meaning, fall from grace, and eventual victory over injustice. In 1921, Robert E. Burns was a shell-shocked and penniless veteran who found himself at the mercy of Georgia's barbaric penal system when he fell in with a gang of petty thieves. Sentenced to six to ten years' hard labor for his part in a robbery that netted less than $6.00, Burns was shackled to a county chain gang. After four months of backbreaking work, he made a daring escape, dodging shotgun blasts, racing through swamps, and eluding bloodhounds on his way north. For seven years Burns lived as a free man. He married and became a prosperous Chicago businessman and publisher. When he fell in love with another woman, however, his jealous wife turned him in to the police, who arrested him as a fugitive from justice. Although he was promised lenient treatment and a quick pardon, he was back on a chain gang within a month. Undaunted, Burns did the impossible and escaped a second time, this time to New Jersey. He was still a hunted man living in hiding when this book was first published in 1932. The book and its movie version, nominated for a Best Picture Oscar in 1933, shocked the world by exposing Georgia's brutal treatment of prisoners. I Am a Fugitive from a Georgia Chain Gang! is a daring and heartbreaking book, an odyssey of misfortune, love, betrayal, adventure, and, above all, the unshakable courage and inner strength of the fugitive himself.

A collection of three controversial classics set in the rural South by a multimillion-copy-selling author. With tens of millions of books sold, Erskine Caldwell was one of the most daring and popular novelists of the twentieth century. He wrote of bigotry, poverty, social injustice, and sexual squalor in the Deep South. This collection includes three of his bestselling novels. Tobacco Road: Jeeter Lester and his Southern sharecropper family are struggling to survive before the Great Depression even begins. But as devastating poverty spreads to the families that once supported them, the Lesters slip completely into the abyss. Rather than hold on to one another for support, Jeeter; his wife, Ada; and their twelve children are overcome by the fractured and violent society around them. The basis for one of the longest running Broadway plays, Tobacco Road is a poignant account of a broken family facing great adversity. God’s Little Acre: Desperation takes its toll on a deluded and impoverished Southern farmer obsessed with sex, violence, and the promise of gold. Meanwhile, his sons and daughters search in vain for their own instant happiness. With more than fourteen million copies sold, this international bestseller lampoons a broken South while holding a light to poverty’s devastating effect on people’s hopes and dreams. Place Called Estherville: In the pre-civil-rights-era South, a biracial brother and sister, Ganus and Kathyanne, move to a small segregated Southern town to care for their aunt, only to be subjected to systematic racism, sexual violence, and prejudice. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erskine Caldwell including rare photos and never-before-seen documents courtesy of the Dartmouth College Library.

The Complete Black Book of Russian Jewry is a collection of eyewitness testimonies, letters, diaries, affidavits, and other documents on the activities of the Nazis against Jews in the camps, ghettoes, and towns of Eastern Europe. Arguably, the only apt comparison is to The Gulag Archipelago of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. This definitive edition, including for the first time materials omitted from previous editions, is a major addition to the literature on the Holocaust. Now available in paperback, it will be of particular interest to students, teachers, and scholars of the Holocaust and those interested in the history of Europe. The Black Book is the single most important text documenting the slaughter of Jews in the USSR. Until now, it was only available in English in truncated editions. Because of its profound significance, this definitive English translation of The Complete Black Book of Russian Jewry is a major literary and intellectual event. " O]ne of the most important books in the vast literature on the Holocaust...The extent of cruelty exhibited here and the uncontrolled ways in which it happened are a graphic demonstration of what the human race is capable of when left entirely to its own devices."-William B. Helmreich, Long Island Jewish World " P]repared by Ehrenburg and Grossman themselves, with fine literary skill...Each section of the documents has a useful set of notes compiled by David Patterson, author of this excellent translation, which clarifies factual issues, and presents brief biographies of more significant figures."-Richard Overy, Times Literary Supplement

Fourteen stories that follow a young boy coming of age in a dysfunctional family in the rural South Meet William Stroop, a young son of the South whose charming voice and mordant observations of family and culture make him one of American literature’s most memorable narrators. In these fourteen interwoven stories, William details the high (and low) points of his family history, focusing particularly on his lazy, scheming father, Morris, his put-upon mother, Martha, and his confidante, Handsome Brown, a young black farmhand. As Morris matches wits with strangers and neighbors alike in constant pursuit of get-rich-quick plans, Martha tries to hold the family together without the aid of any discernable income. Told with the polish and moral resonance of fables, Georgia Boy captures the beauty and tragedy of life in the rural South during the twentieth century. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erskine Caldwell including rare photos and never-before-seen documents courtesy of the Dartmouth College Library.
