Subsistence U.S.A. Photographs by Bruce Davidson. Text by Carol Hill. Subsistence Press/Holt, Rinehart and Winston, New York, 1973. 192 pp. Quarto. Clothbound in photo-illustrated library protected dust jacket. Numerous black-and-white reproductions.
This book, a collaboration between Davidson and writer Carol Hill, is sort of a rural counterpart to Davidson's better known East 100th Street. "Subsistence is endurance, not poverty. And the ability to endure, stubbornly confronting life and dealing with it in personal terms, is what distinguishes the people in this book"--the publisher
A Fine copy with some rubbing to dust jacket and foxing to top fore-edges being the only flaws.
