"Letters from an American Farmer" is a collection of essays Crèvecœur wrote on his farm at Pine Hill. They appeared in 1782 and were an immediate success, because they satisfied an almost insatiable demand for news about America and confirmed, for most readers, a vision of a new land, rich and promising, where hard work prevailed over class.
