Three hundred letters by Agnes Edwards, a student at UC Berkeley, comprise this volume which spans 1917 to 1921. The letters, written faithfully to her parents once a week, encompass some important national themes: World War I, the Spanish influenza epidemic, and the first U.S. election in which women could vote. They reveal the crossroads that America was facing in those years, such as the horse and buggy vs. the automobile in civilian life, and horses and mules vs. airplanes and tanks in warfare.
