Letters from an American Farmer
Consummate narrative essays made Crevecoeur a celebrated writer in America. In the epistles he has rendered an ideal American society with egalitarianism and free-will. Remarkable for the beauty of style in depiction of American naivete and simple standard of living, it shows the approval of the religious multiplicity created by ethnic and cultural backgrounds. Fascinating!
