|Abstract/Description:||This study first briefly discusses the Rivers of America series as a whole, with regard to its origin, its plan, and its public acceptance. Next there is a discussion of the volumes about Southern rivers, including an analysis of the authors' qualifications, organization, scope, treatment, reviewer's opinions, and recommendations by library book selection aids of each volume. Incidental treatment is given to the illustrator's qualifications and the general use of art work in the volumes. The summation attempts to show the success or failure of these volumes about Southern rivers to meet the criteria outlined for the series in the prospectus and to indicate some basic changes in the contents, the variety of reviewers' attitudes through the years, and the importance of these books as Southern regional writing.|
|Bibliography Note:||Includes bibliographical references (leaves 50-59).|
"Submitted to the Graduate Council of Florida State University in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Arts."
