"Not a popular book perhaps, but well-written and truly interesting if you wish to know a bit more about the whole of American history. I was on a history kick at the time in an effort to strengthen my knowledge in that subject area, but I believe I failed as I have forgotten the majority of it!"

— Steve (4 out of 5 stars)
