Andrew Carroll discusses Letters of a Nation.

Six years in the making, LETTERS OF A NATION is the most comprehensive collection of American letters ever assembled, offering over 200 extraordinary letters—many published here for the first time—by presidents and prisoners, soldiers and slaves, explorers and expatriates, artists and activists, Nobel laureates and Native Indians, writers and revolutionaries. Spanning over 350 years of American history—from the first pilgrims to present day writers—these letters cover the full spectrum of human emotion and experience, including love, heartache, courage, hope friendship, humor, mercy, surrender, rage, regret, and consolation. LETTERS OF A NATION not only features letters by such American leaders as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Ronald Reagan, but messages from Cesar Chavez, Susan B. Anthony, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Dorothy Day, Phillis Wheatley, Frederick Douglass, Rabbi Stephen Wise, and many lesser known, though no less remarkable, Americans from all walks of life. A portion o the proceeds form Letters of a Nation benefit the American Poetry and Literacy Project for continued support of poetry and literacy in America. —from the publisher's website (timspalding)… (more)
