During the 1930s in the United States, the Works Progress Administration developed the Federal Writers’ Project to support writers and artists while making a national effort to document the country’s shared history and culture. The American Guide series consists of individual guides to each of the states. Little-known authors—many of whom would later become celebrated literary figures—were commissioned to write these important books. John Steinbeck, Saul Bellow, Zora Neale Hurston, and Ralph Ellison are among the more than 6,000 writers, editors, historians, and researchers who documented this celebration of local histories. Photographs, drawings, driving tours, detailed descriptions of towns, and rich cultural details exhibit each state’s unique flavor. Featuring one of the most historically rich regions of America, the WPA Guide to Massachusetts is an excellent comprehensive guide to the “Bay State.” Focusing on urban Boston, also known as the Cradle of Liberty, and including rural Plymouth, this guide features a comprehensive tour scheme to engage tourists and residents alike.
