To rescue the future, we must remember our past. 

With command and wit, William J. Bennett reacquaints Americans with their heritage in an engaging narrative that cuts through the cobwebs of time, memory, and prevailing cynicism. Washington, Franklin, Lincoln, Roosevelt, and others reemerge not as marble icons or dust-dry names in a textbook, but as full-blooded, heroic pioneers whose far-reaching vision forged a nation that attracted—that still attracts—millions yearning to breathe free. In this, the first volume of a reasoned, balanced presentation of the American story, Bennett tells our nation’s story, with all its triumphs and tragedies. He summons us to embrace America’s cause once again as the last best hope of Earth.
