This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Charles Erskine Scott Wood (1852-1944) led an exuberant life that seemed to embrace the entire nation & its times. Wood remembered seeing Abraham Lincoln, he knew Chief Joseph, Clarence Darrow, & Lincoln Steffens, & he survived to the dawn of the atomic era. Among his acquaintances he counted Mark Twain, Emma Goldman, Margaret Sanger, Woodrow Wilson, Langston Hughes, Ezra Pound, & Ansel Adams. He fought in the Indian campaigns of the post-Civil War era; he represented wealthy businessmen as an attorney in Portland, Oregon, during the Gilded Age; he befriended the political & cultural radicals of New York in the early twentieth century; & he became a central figure among the West Coast artists of the 1930s. He was short, a man of extraordinarily wide - & often conflicting - impulses & talents. In this captivating, highly readable biography of Wood, the author presents both the life & the times, Wood's work & the intellectual, political, & cultural cross currents of his era. The author ably captures Wood's many contradictions yet unearths the enduring essence of the man: his rebelliousness, his hatred of social & economic inequalities, his unbounded appetite for life, beauty, & pleasure.
