Abstract:

One of the most entertaining Arkansas histories was put together during the Great Depression by a group of writers and photographers through a government made-work program called the Arkansas Writers' Project. These days, a different Arkansas Writers' Project is a private publishing company in Little Rock which for 20 years has published the Arkansas Times, first as a monthly magazine and now as a weekly newspaper. The only connection between the two Writers' Projects is one of spirit: the original writers' group back in the 1930s chronicles both the history of the state and contemporary affairs in Arkansas with an enthusiasm and with an attention to telling details and unusual characters that were missing in the more formal history volumes. Now the Arkansas Writers' Project of the 1990s has compiled a history of the state in the same anecdotal spirit, with a rich selection of historical articles from the hundreds that have appeared in the Arkansas Times in the past two decades. If you don't know why Arkansas has been called the Wonder State, you'll discover why in Arkansas Times: A History of Arkansas in Stories and Pictures.
