These Are OUr Lives is one of the supreme products of what Alfred Kazin called the 'significant experience in national self-discovery' that happened in the 1930's. Thirty-five life histories of workers, sharecroppers, and the unemployed in three Southern states, these accounts were hailed by Charles A. Beard as 'literature more powerful than anything I have read in fiction, not excluding Zola's most vehement passages.' Selected and edited by W.T. Couch, director of the Federal Writers' Project in the Southeast, these life histories were chosen from more than four hundred which now repose in the Southern Historical Collection at Chapel Hill. --George Tindall, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
