"The “Finders and Makers” series began with The Flowering of New England, 1815–1865 (1936) , followed by New England: Indian Summer, 1865–1915 (1940) , The World of Washington Irving (1944) , The Times of Melville and Whitman (1947) , and The Confident Years: 1885–1915 (1952). Criticized by some for seeking in this series a mainstream, essentially middlebrow, cultural tradition free from contradictions and conflicts, Brooks wrote The Writer in America (1953) to justify his position." ; Signed by Author
