Growing up in Sacramento, Steffens (1866-1936) was an editor at the NY Evening Post, later at McClure’s Magazine. As popular as he was cantankerous, he brushed shoulders with presidents & corporate barons, tsars & dictators. His efforts to expose corruption took him all over the nation & on to Mexico, Europe & the new USSR, where he made his famous proclamation, ‘I have seen the future, & it works!’ He would later become disenchanted with Soviet communism, & eventually he returned to California, to feel again its ‘warm, colorful force of beauty’ & to write what would become this best-selling memoir.

Inspiring, entertaining & lyrical, The Autobiography is the story of a brilliant reporter with a passion for examining the complex & contradictory conditions that breed corruption, poverty & misery.AcknowledgmentsA Boy on HorsebackSeeing New York FirstMuckrakingRevolutionSeeing America LastIllustrationsIndex
