The Open Anthology of Earlier American Literature is an open textbook that began as a project by Robin DeRosa, professor at Plymouth State University, and her students, who were looking for a cost-savings anthology for their classroom. The project was later picked up by Abby Goode. Now, thanks to the guidance of lead editor, Timothy Robbins, assistant professor of English at Graceland University, collaborators from institutions around the U.S., and support from the Rebus Community, the anthology has since expanded to include more texts, and is now available for use in Early American Literature survey courses.
