It's great to see this smart blend of photographs neatly arranged in this terrific volume.  
Chicago Tribune, Beth Kephart, 23 February 2003 
Beyond the lush and entrancing photographs, there is the history one reads between the lines of captions.  
Book Description 
Over 400 rarely or never-seen photographs of a vanished America.  
Long Time Coming is derived from the 145,000 photographs made between 1935 and 1943 by a team of photographers employed by the Farm Security Administration (FSA), including Dorothea Lange and Walker Evans. Despite the iconic images of poverty that are usually associated with the project, the agency's mission went well beyond photographing dispossessed rural people. This book reproduces 410 remarkable images made in large cities and small towns throughout the United States and Puerto Rico, images that have rarely been seen-fully 20 percent have never been published. The book's iconoclastic, groundbreaking text intercuts excerpts from primary and secondary sources with an extended look at Roy Stryker, the FSA's controversial director, to present the FSA photographs in a very different light from the bleak vision to which we are accustomed.  
Taken together, the photographs and text present a portrait of America, a visual record of everyday existence that will change many of our assumptions about the era. 410 duotone photographs.
