Unrivaled diversity and teachability have made "The Heath Anthology "a best-selling text since the publication of its first edition in 1989. In presenting a more inclusive canon of American literature, "The Heath Anthology" continues to balance the traditional, leading names in American literature with lesser-known writers and to build upon the anthology's other strengths: its apparatus and its ancillaries. Available in five volumes for greater flexibility, the Fifth Edition offers thematic clusters to stimulate classroom discussions and to show the treatment of important topics across the genres. The indispensable web site includes revised timelines, a multimedia gallery to support thematic clusters, and a searchable Instructor's Guide. The thematic cluster, "Humor of the Old Southwest," features works by Davy Crockett, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Alice Cary. Authors include Major George Lowery, the second chief of the Eastern Cherokee; John Ross; Lorenzo de Zavala; and Nancy Gardner Prince. Selections include "The Maldive Shark," by Herman Melville, "Ar'n't I a Woman?" by Sojourner Truth, and "Hints to Young Wives" by Fanny Fern (Sara Willis Parton). Walt Whitman's "Crossing Brooklyn Ferry," previously omitted from important literary canons, is offered as a rich selection of the "American Renaissance."
