The American Spirit : Who We Are and What We Stand For Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

A New York Times Bestseller A timely collection of speeches by David McCullough, the most honored historian in the United States-winner of two Pulitzer Prizes, two National Book Awards, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, among many others-that reminds us of fundamental American principles. "Insightful and inspirational, The American Spirit summons a vexed and divided nation to remember-and cherish-our unifying ideas and ideals" (Richmond Times-Dispatch).

Over the course of his distinguished career, McCullough has spoken before Congress, the White House, colleges and universities, historical societies, and other esteemed institutions.

Now, at a time of self-reflection in America following the bitter 2016 election campaign that has left the country divided, McCullough has collected some of his most important speeches in a brief volume that celebrates the important principles and characteristics that are particularly American. "The American Spirit is as inspirational as it is brilliant, as simple as it is sophisticated" (Buffalo News).

McCullough reminds us of the core American values that define us, regardless of which region we live in, which political party we identify with, or our ethnic background.

This is a book about America for all Americans that reminds us who we are and helps to guide us as we find our way forward.
