This is an anthology of public domain texts from earlier American literature, collected by students, faculty, and alumnae of Plymouth State University as an OER alternative to expensive commercial anthologies. The project is now developing through the Rebus Community, under the direction of managing editor Timothy Robbins, so users are encouraged to visit Rebus online to find additional information about and subsequent iterations of this book.
