The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin

The Journal of John Woolman

Some Fruits of Solitude by William Penn

Every series has to start somewhere. For this series it is with The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin. Perhaps one of the greatest US autobiographies ever written. I have read it too many times to count. There are not graphics in this version, there is stand alone version that has many graphics in it.

The Journal of John Woolman, also available as a stand alone version, is the account of an early Quaker and his journey to see the evils of slavery many years before the Civil War.

Some Fruits of Solitude by William Penn is a mine of pithy comment upon human life, which combines with the acute common sense of Franklin the spiritual elevation of Woolman.
