Edna Ferber
Ferber: Edna Ferber and Her Circle Ferber: Edna Ferber and Her Circle by Julie Gilbert
This biography begins with Ferber's last years in New York City, exploring the setting in which she did all of her great writing: the novels So Big (Pulitzer Prize winner), Cimarron, Giant, and Show Boat, and celebrated plays: Dinner at Eight, Stage Door, and The Royal Family, which she wrote with George S. Kaufman. The book then moves back to Edna Ferber's youth, to her beginnings as a newspaperwoman in Appleton, Wisconsin, and finally to her family: her self-effacing father and tyrannical mother. An insightful engaging analysis of a woman writer highly influential in the shaping of twentieth century America.
So Big by Edna Ferber
This novel, published in 1924, was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 1925. The book tells the story of Selina Peake DeJong, a gambler's daughter with a love of life and a nurturing spirit.
Cimarron by Edna Ferber
Restless Yancey Cravat, a pioneer newspaper editor and lawyer, settles in Osage, a muddy town thrown together overnight when the Oklahoma territory opens in 1889. To this place he brings his wife Sabra, a woman both conventional and well-bred. Incredibly, Sabra adapts to the life and develops a brilliant business sense. Through her eyes we see the violent frontier collide with resentful Indians, we watch the sodbusters tame the prairie, and experience the sudden fortune of a lucky few.
Giant by Edna Ferber
Leslie Lynnton, beautiful and spirited, trades Virginia for Texas with her husband, Bick Benedict, owner of the Reata Ranch empire. Vast fortunes in cattle and oil contrast with the plight of Mexican laborers, but Texas emerges as tempestuous, exhilarating, exasperating and, above all, "alive."
Show Boat by Edna Ferber
A great family story set in the world of Mississippi show boats, turn of the century Chicago, and the Broadway theater scene of the 1920s. It is the source of the famous stage and movie musical and anyone who has enjoyed those versions will love this book.

Under a Wing: A Memoir Under a Wing: A Memoir by Reeve Lindbergh
This is a very personal memoir from Reeve Lindbergh, the youngest daughter of Charles and Anne Lindbergh, that provides an intimate portrait of her family and the complex personalities of her mother and her father. From Kirkus Reviews: "This is an eloquent recollection of a happy childhood in a tightly knit family whose parents' celebrity complicated but did not contort their lives." This memoir is highly recommended reading.
Lindbergh Lindbergh by A. Scott Berg
A. Scott Berg's thorough biography of Charles Lindbergh suggests that despite the public scrutiny that accompanied his every move until his death in 1974, Lindbergh remained an intensely private man. Lindbergh's wife, the writer Anne Morrow Lindbergh, gave Berg unrestricted access to her husband's and her own voluminous personal papers--and he made good use of them to assess both the couple's relationship and their activities.
