Description

First published in 1973, this follow-up to Alistair Cooke's acclaimed 1972 television documentary series America: A Personal History of the United States has sold almost two million copies. From the nation's discovery to modern times; from the American revolutionaries to the pioneers who forged westward; from the slaves who fled north to the immigrants that sought a new life, Cooke vividly describes the spirit of the United States. Cooke's portrayal of America's dynamic history and its ever-changing present continues to provide striking insights into the remarkable character of a nation.show more
