Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ernest Taylor Pyle (August 3, 1900 - April 18, 1945) was an American journalist who wrote as a roving correspondent for the Scripps Howard newspaper chain from 1935 until his death in combat during World War II. He won the Pulitzer Prize in 1944. His articles, about the out-of-the-way places he visited and the people who lived there, were written in a folksy style, much like a personal letter to a friend. He enjoyed a following in some 300 newspapers.Pyle was born on a tenant farm near Dana, Indiana. When he was almost 18, he joined the United States Navy Reserve. World War I ended soon after, so Pyle served for only three months.show more
