71a.2. Farm Security Administration. Pare Lorentz. The River. Stackpole Sons, 1938. 1st edition. This publication is the book version of the landmark Great Depression era documentary film, The River, written and directed by Pare Lorentz for the Farm Security Administration. It tells the story of the huge Tennessee Valley Authority, a New Deal project that harnessed river power to produce electricity, control floods, and provide irrigation for farm lands. The book text is taken verbatim from the film narration, which was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for poetry. The photographs are taken either from the film, shot by cameramen Willard Van Dyke and Floyd Crosby, or are by government photographers working in the same area where the film was made. The photographs, not individually credited in the book, were gathered by Charles Krutch, a TVA photographer. For excellent information about the film, see the excellent website Reaping the Golden Harvest: Pare Lorentz, Poet and Filmmaker. Lorentz also did other films for the FSA, of which the first was The Plow That Broke the Plains and the second was The River. Together with the images by still photographers such as Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Russell Lee, Arthur Rothstein, John Vachon, Marion Post Wolcott, Edwin Rosskam, and others, the FSA films educated the public about the agriculture conditions in the United States during the presidency of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the innovative federal government programs that were implemented to address these problems. This very good copy is hardcover in blue cloth that is worn at extremities, lacks the scarce dust jacket. Signature of original owner on front flyleaf. SOLD
