A New York Times bestseller: This portrait of the United States at the beginning of World War II is "an unexpected and welcome discovery in a time capsule" (The Washington Post).

In nearly three thousand BBC broadcasts over fifty-eight years, Alistair Cooke reported on America, illuminating our country for a global audience. Shortly before he passed away, a long-forgotten manuscript resurfaced in a closet in his New York apartment. It was a travelogue of America during the early days of World War II that had sat there for sixty years.

Published to stellar reviews, Cooke's The American Home Front is a "valentine to his adopted country by someone who loved it as well as anyone and knew it better than most" (The Plain Dealer). A portrait frozen in time, the book offers a charming look at the era as it journeys through small towns, big cities, and the American landscape as they once were. The American Home Front is also a brilliant piece of reportage, a historical gem that "affirms Cooke's enduring place as a great twentieth-century reporter" (American Heritage).

"An interesting eyewitness record . . . It recalls transcontinental travel in the pre-interstate highway era, and with greater depth, social problems that Cooke detected beneath the win-the-war exhortations he encountered from coast to coast." Booklist
