"The Selected Letters of Juanita Brooks"

by Craig S. Smith

The 220 letters selected for this book offer a fresh and intimate encounter with Juanita Brooks. The letters in this
volume, written from 1941 to 1978, trace Brooks's development from fledgling historian to recognized authority.
Serving as a biography of her interactions with her contemporaries, this selection of letters provides a new
perspective on Brooks's personality and growth as a scholar. Richly detailed, chatty, and covering a wide array
of subjects, the letters afford an important glimpse into Brooks's struggles, concerns, and interests.
