This new book presents a bibliography with vignettes for a panoply of American writers. In the end, a writer pens their thoughts and what they leave for future generations constitutes their legacy. The American writers presented here cover the widest spectrum of human thought and experience. They share the desire to say something to others; we ignore their voices at our own peril. America is a young country and perhaps always will be if she continues to be renewed by new immigrants and cultures and the freedom of speech and thought.
