"Published in 1836, Power, a famous Irish stage actor and theatrical manager and great-grandfather of the 1930s and 1940s Hollywood film star Tyrone Power, offers his perspectives on America, based on extensive theatrical tours taken during the years of 1833, 1834, and 1835 through New England, the Mid-Atlantic, and the South. Especially rich are his descriptions of the theater audiences for whom he performed, describing the differences among the audiences of such cities as New York, Albany, Boston, Pittsburg, and New Orleans. Through these descriptions we can get a feeling for the customs and manners of the residents of these and the other cities Power visited on his tours. Vol. 1 of 2"
