📝Down and Out in Early America Book Synopsis : It has often been said that early America was the &"best poor man&’s country in the world.&" After all, wasn&’t there an abundance of land and a scarcity of laborers? The law of supply and demand would seem to dictate that most early American working people enjoyed high wages and a decent material standard of living. Down and Out in Early America presents the evidence for poverty versus plenty and concludes that financial insecurity was a widespread problem that plagued many early Americans. The fact is that in early America only an extremely thin margin separated those who required assistance from those who were able to secure independently the necessities of life. The reasons for this were many: seasonal and cyclical unemployment, inadequate wages, health problems (including mental illness), alcoholism, a large pool of migrants, low pay for women, abandoned families. The situation was made worse by the inability of many communities to provide help for the poor except to incarcerate them in workhouses and almshouses. The essays in this volume explore the lives and strategies of people who struggled with destitution, evaluate the changing forms of poor relief, and examine the political, religious, gender, and racial aspects of poverty in early North America. Down and Out in Early America features a distinguished lineup of historians. In the first chapter, Gary B. Nash surveys the scholarship on poverty in early America and concludes that historians have failed to appreciate the numerous factors that generated widespread indigence. Philip D. Morgan examines poverty among slaves while Jean R. Soderlund looks at the experience of Native Americans in New Jersey. In the other essays, Monique Bourque, Ruth Wallis Herndon, Tom Humphrey, Susan E. Klepp, John E. Murray, Simon Newman, J. Richard Olivas, and Karin Wulf look at the conditions of poverty across regions, making this the most complete and comprehensive work of its kind.

📝Reaching Out to America Book Synopsis : Reaching Out to America is a book that teaches people all over America about what really matters on this earth, to believe in themselves, how to succeed in life, how to be strong, and how to fulfill their inner selves. Even as a spiritually fired-up person, we can all make it just as long as we stay strong and try our best to succeed. Sometimes you have to go through the bad times to get to the good times. For just when one says "Enough is enough," one must find the solution to the problem to make it on this earth. To "be all I can be, no matter what," one must take the blindfold off ones eyes, so one can see her future. The author states, "As I grow older, I can teach the younger generation to come, because they are the future in this world too." All should reunite and make a difference in this world, so that we can learn from each other, and hear one another’s voice. Love is more important in life because when we die we can’t take materialistic things with us. So why treat each other bad when we can love each other, and not go against each other. Anger doesn’t solve anything, and creates chaos in one’s life. When love is more important in one’s life, one can look on the bright side of life and continue on doing what Jesus would want one to do. We were all place on this earth for a purpose; we must look to fulfill that purpose so we don’t get left behind in society today. Jealousy, hatred, and envy won’t get one anything but chaos in one’s life, and later on, Satan just throwing one away. So it’s not to be that way because God didn’t make us to be that way. He made us for a purpose, and we must look at life that way. So why not help one another? It is the only right way in God’s eyes, because He looks at everything we do and we sure don’t anything to catch up with us.

📝The Orphan Trains Book Synopsis : "From 1850 to 1930 America witnessed a unique emigration and resettlement of at least 200,000 children and several thousand adults, primarily from the East Coast to the West. This 'placing out,' an attempt to find homes for the urban poor, was best known by the 'orphan trains' that carried the children. Holt carefully analyzes the system, initially instituted by the New York Children's Aid Society in 1853, tracking its imitators as well as the reasons for its creation and demise. She captures the children's perspective with the judicious use of oral histories, institutional records, and newspaper accounts. This well-written volume sheds new light on the multifaceted experience of children's immigration, changing concepts of welfare, and Western expansion. It is good, scholarly social history."--Library Journal "Soon there will be no memories of the 'little companies,' as they were called, of children setting out with an adult leader for a new life. This little book is kind of a preservation movement, and a contribution to our understanding of how the West was won."--David Shribman, Wall Street Journal "As a portrait of the time's charitable networks, The Orphan Trains succeeds. . . . [Holt's] work brings to light a meaningful concept: the idea that charity; then and now, is sometimes tinged with greed, indifference, hostility, self-promotion and is an institution that can serve the giver more than the receiver."--David James Rose, Washington Times Marilyn Irvin Holt, former director of publications at the Kansas State Historical Society; is a freelance editor, writer, and researcher and teaches historical editing at the University of Kansas.

📝Trying It Out in America Book Synopsis : The experimental genius of American artists-interpreted by one of our most dependably brilliant critics. Richard Poirier suggests, in the title of his new book, that the United States has been uncommonly hospitable to literary and artistic experimentation, to innovation and daring. Just as the nation likes to imagine itself as always in a state of becoming and renewal, some of its greatest writers seem willing to accept a measure of neglect during their lifetimes while remaining confident of posthumous triumph. With analytical daring and shrewd literary delicacy, Poirier advances these themes in essays ranging from Emerson and Whitman to "those avowed imperialists of the novelistic imagination Herman Melville, Henry James, and Norman Mailer," along with kindred twentieth-century figures such as T. S. Eliot and Frank O'Hara, Gertrude Stein and Marianne Moore. Poirier's explorations of the American scene are not limited to poets and novelists. His moving account of the American ballets of George Balanchine, of Bette Midler in performance, of the reclusive Arthur Inman-whose immense diary offers incomparable glimpses into daily life during World War II-and his challenging refutations of some persistent myths of American "manhood" and of America itself, by outside observers like Jean Baudrillard or Martin Amis, will bring readers to a new appreciation of the most interesting (and difficult) features of American culture.
