The American Guide series consists of individual guides to each of the states. Little-known authors�many of whom would later become celebrated literary figures�were commissioned to write these important books. John Steinbeck, Saul Bellow, Zora Neale Hurston, and Ralph Ellison are among the more than 6,000 writers, editors, historians, and researchers who documented this celebration of local histories.
