The Return to America

Autumn 1938 | Criticism

I feel sure that many thousands of Americans who in common with me have felt fainthearted in the recent past, and have weakened toward other means than those indigenous to us for bringing us out of our miseries, will be greatly heartened by these stiffening books. They will be grateful to think that these authors belong to us; grateful to Mr. Adamic that he makes us feel his urge, and grateful to Mr. Hindus for showing our best character so clearly.
