Over ten years ago, William J. Bennett released a three-volume account of our nation's history. Now, Bennett returns to that bestselling trilogy, revising and condensing his epic tale into one volume, a page-turning narrative of our unique nation. Bennett's signature gripping prose will reintroduce you to presidents of the past like Franklin, Lincoln Roosevelt, Reagan, and others. Witness how the pioneers of this country had a far-reaching vision that helped forge a nation that attracted and continues to attract millions yearning to breathe free.
From the excitement of the Revolution to the trying times of the Civil War, from the progressive reforms of the 1960s, to the high drama of the Space Race, to the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the collapse of global Communism, to the attacks on 0-11 and the war on terror, William J. Bennett takes the players, personalities, and pivotal moments of American history with piercing insight, and unrelenting optimism. In this stunning tale of a nation, the story of what Lincoln called the last best hope on of earth comes alive in all its drama and personality.
