This Halcyon Classics ebook collection contains Booth Tarkington's Pulitzer-Prize winning novel THE MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS and its less well-known prequel, THE TURMOIL.
The MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS traces the growth of the United States through the declining fortunes of three generations of the aristocratic Amberson family in a fictional Midwestern town, between the end of the Civil War and the early part of the 20th century, a period of rapid industrialization and socio-economic change in America. The decline of the Ambersons is contrasted with the rising fortunes of industrial tycoons and other new-money families, which did not derive power from family names but by "doing things."
This ebook contains an active table of contents and is DRM free.
