The Voice of the People Book Description:

Ellen Anderson Gholson Glasgow (1873-1945) was a Pulitzer Prize winning American novelist from Richmond, Virginia. Beginning in 1897, she wrote 20 novels and many short stories, mainly about life in Virginia. Her own education had been rudimentary, a fact Glasgow compensated for by reading widely. She maintained a close lifelong friendship with James Branch Cabell, another notable Richmond writer. She spent many summers at her family's Bumpass, Virginia estate, the historic Jerdone Castle plantation, a venue that reappears in her writings. Her works include: The Descendant (1897), Phases of an Inferior Planet (1898), The Voice of the People (1900), The Battle- Ground (1902), The Deliverance: A Romance of the Virginia Tobacco Fields (1904), The Romance of a Plain Man (1909), Virginia (1913), The Builders (1919), The Past (1920), Barren Ground (1925), The Romantic Comedians (1926), They Stooped to Folly (1929), The Sheltered Life (1932), Vein of Iron (1935), In This Our Life (1941).
