Description:
How did America become one single nation? What unified a growing number of disparate states into the modern country we recognise today? In this monumental history, Simon Winchester addresses these questions, examining the breathtaking achievements that helped forge and unify both the citizens and the geography of America.

Winchester follows in the footsteps of America's most essential explorers, thinkers, and innovators, including Lewis and Clark and their Corps of Discovery Expedition to the Pacific Coast, the builders of the first transcontinental telegraph, and the powerful civil engineer behind the Interstate Highway System. Some of these men will be familiar, some forgotten, some hardly known - yet they all played a pivotal role in creating today's United States. Throughout, Winchester ponders whether the historic work of uniting the States has succeeded, and to what degree.

This is a fresh and lively look at the way in which the most powerful nation on earth came together, from one of our most entertaining and insightful observers.
