About my libraryThe library listed here is the portion that remained at Connemara, my farm at Flat Rock, NC, after I sent the rest of it to the University of Illinois. It was cataloged by the National Park Service and was sent to the I See Dead People['s Libraries] volunteers by them. It is a family library and includes; some of my Lincoln research, folk tales, political books, and pleasure reading. Our library includes Paula's (Lilian Steichen Sandburg) goat books, Swedish books, my parents were from Sweden, and a number of yearbooks and textbooks that were dedicated to me or used excerpts of my work. Some of my granddaughter's books are in here too. There are also several books with my brother in law and good friend Edward Steichen's work in them.

Hi, I noticed that we share a book, MY SISTER AND I, which was one of my favorite biographies when I was a kid. I've tried to research the history of the book and was told my Jane Yolen she believes it was written by a ghost writer and that it's not the autobiography it's presented as being. She noted the publication date and noted that publishers during WWII were known to publish books to encourage American involvement in the war effort. I also spoke to an editorial assistant at Harcourt who told me they have no record of the title in their archives.

I noticed that your library has listed the author as a pseudonym. Do you know the history of this book? Can you point me to someone who can help?
This is a wonderful place to visit: directions for goat cheese much appreciated.

I think it's correct, with one exception - It should be 'Från Bakstugan'.
A 'bakstuga' is a communal bakery of sorts.
My "edit" and "save" buttons just quit working, too. Did you ever get yours fixed?
Nice library. I don't suppose I could convince you to stop at 7,410 books.

Not that I'm competitive, or anything.
Is this the official list of books that were at his house in Flat Rock?
