1 Michener, James A. Legacy
New York, NY Random House 1987 0394564324 / 9780394564326 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket 

Corners slightly bumped, Jacket shows slight shelf wear.

"Major Norman Starr, attached to the National Security Council, is told that he will shortly be called before a congressional committee. Through a tense, reflective weekend, the officer talks over the situation with his wife and a street-wise Washington lawyer-and begins to think back to the long line of Americans from whom he is descended. One was a Supreme Court justice, another figured importantly in the unofficial nightly debates about drafting a new document to unify and help guide the affairs of the young United States, another was an unlikely but courageous and effective suffragist. One by one, these and others parade through the officer's mind-the soldier, the Roosevelt-hater, the slave-owner. . . Legacy is a novel as timely as today and as timeless as truth and justice-its biographical port6raits an eloquent lesson in American history."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
