Alistair Cooke's AmericaBook - 2002
Alistair Cooke traces the history of America from the eve of discovery by European explorers to modern times: the young nation fighting for independence and forging its identity; the indomitable spirit of those who set out to tame the West; the fate of slaves and their masters; the huddled masses who came seeking a new life. For this revised edition, Cooke has written an introduction and final chapter, bringing the story up to date with the inimitable wisdom that has engaged his audiences and readers for over half a century.
