Always the Young Strangers: The Poet Historians Moving Recollection of His Small Town Youth

The Pulitzer Prize–winning poet and historian recalls his midwestern boyhood in this classic memoir.
 
Born in a tiny cottage in Galesburg, Illinois, in 1878, Carl Sandburg grew with America. As a boy he left school at the age of thirteen to embark on a life of work—driving a milk wagon and serving as a hotel porter, a bricklayer, and a farm laborer before eventually finding his place in the world of literature.
 
In Always the Young Strangers, Sandburg delivers a nostalgic view of small-town life around the turn of the twentieth century and an invaluable perspective on American history.
