"Of all the photobooks stemming from the New Deal, and the FSA in particular, An American Exodus...is the most considered. Not only does it have the closest integration of text and image, but the whole book was compiled with scrupulous attention to the presentation of facts, without either hyperbole or undue rhetoric on the part of photographer or writer...Both she and Taylor seemed to have been acutely aware of piling on too much heart-wringing rhetoric. They have included just enough to make their sympathies clear, and to keep their audience engaged. This makes An American Exodus the most balanced of New Deal documentary books, and therefore a model for the genre."--Parr & Badger, The Photobook: A History, vol. I Also included in Roth, et. al., The Book of 101 Books and The Open Book
