From more than ten thousand interviews, StoryCorps--the largest oral history project in the nation's history--presents a tapestry of American stories, told by the people who lived them to the people they love. StoryCorps began with the idea that everyone has an important story to tell. And since 2003, this remarkable project has been collecting the stories of everyday Americans from all ages, backgrounds, and walks of life and preserving them for future generations. Here, StoryCorps founder Dave Isay selects some of the most remarkable stories from the already vast collection and arranges them thematically into a moving portrait of American life. The voices here connect us to real people and their lives--to their experiences of profound joy, sadness, courage and despair, to good times and hard times, to good deeds and misdeeds.--From publisher description.
