Lanterns on the levee : recollections of a planter's son by William Alexander Percy( Book )

3 editions published in 1941 in English and held by 857 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born and raised in Greenville, Mississippi, within the shelter of old traditions, aristocratic in the best sense, William Alexander Percy in his lifetime (1885'1942) was brought face to face with the convulsions of a changing world. Lanterns on the Levee is his memorial to the South of his youth and young manhood. In describing life in the Mississippi Delta, Percy bridges the interval between the semifeudal South of the 1800s and the anxious South of the early 1940s. The rare qualities of this classic memoir lie not in what Will Percy did in his life'although his life was exciting and varied'but rather in the intimate, honest, and soul-probing record of how he brought himself to contemplate unflinchingly a new and unstable era. The 1973 introduction by Walker Percy'Will's nephew and adopted son'recalls the strong character and easy grace of "the most extraordinary man I have ever known."
Caribbean, sea of the New World by Germán Arciniegas( Book )

1 edition published in 1946 in English and held by 837 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book was first published in 1946, one year after the Spanish original Biografia del Caribe." "There are four 'books' in this work, corresponding roughly to the four centuries from the arrival of Columbus to the construction of the Panama Canal. Their titles tell the themes: the Golden Age; the Silver Age; the Age of Enlightenment and the Age of Liberty. According to Professor Gustavo Belle Lemus, historian and former Vice-President of Colombia, Arciniegas broke with the traditional nationalistic perspectives of Hispanic American historians by incorporating the Caribbean into the long history of the West, as an integral part of the violent expansion of the Judeo-Christian world that began with the arrival of Columbus. As such, Caribbean Sea of the New World takes its place as one of the earliest expressions of a Pan-Caribbean intellectual and political consciousness."--BOOK JACKET
Southern legacy by Hodding Carter( Book )

1 edition published in 1950 in English and held by 833 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Life with father by Clarence Day( Book )

1 edition published in 1935 in English and held by 816 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A humorous autobiographical book set in 1890's New York. Clarence Day Jr.'s comic tales of his father, Clarence 'Clare' Day Senior, portray a rambunctious, short-fused Wall Street broker who demands that everything from his family (and other menials) should be just so. When it isn't, all hell breaks loose. Clare is intolerant and tyrannical in his constant battle to harness the world to his way of thinking. The more he rails against his staff, his cook, his wife, his horse, salesmen, holidays, his children and the inability of the world to live up to his impossible standards, the more comical and lovable he becomes to his own family who love him despite it all. -- from the publisher
