In this biography of Tolson, Robert M. Farnsworth has gathered much new information on the poet from family papers; from reminiscences of friends, acquaintances, and relatives; and from scholarly analyses of his work to create a clarifying and insightful account of the poet's life. The events and preoccupations of Tolson's life in turn provide a useful context for examining Tolson's major poems. Moreover, Farnsworth has determined the chronology of most of Tolson's writings, many of which were before either unknown or known only through obscure references. --University of Missouri Press

At the age of nineteen Edgar Snow (1905-1972) left his native Kansas City to begin a career in advertising in New York. Four years later, impatient with the lack of recognition for his achievements, he broke from his advertising job to try the adventure of working and writing his way around the world. His journey stalled for thirteen years in Asia, where Snow came to be considered the most authoritative reporter on the Communist movement in China and an important reporter on Asia at large to the Western world. His Red Star over China has been recognized as a classic of modern journalism. In From Vagabond to Journalist, Robert M. Farnsworth brings to life the Snow who went to and reported on China between 1928 and 1941

7 editions published between 1969 and 1998 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A landmark in the history of African-American fiction, this gripping 1901 novel was among the first literary challenges to racial stereotypes. Its tragic history of two families unfolds against the backdrop of the post-Reconstruction South, in the shadow of segregation... The Marrow of Tradition climaxes with a race riot, based on an actual 1898 incident in Wilmington, North Carolina, that was engineered by white supremacist forces and an inflammatory press." -- Back cover
