"History sounds dry as dust and often is. /but the history behind the history, the story of the people who inspired the events, is as good reading today as it was in 1066, or 1942, or 1776. The year 1606 begins this narrative of the men and women who made America. Mark Van Doren has collected their personal documents, letters, diaries, public statements-tied them together with his own brief comments-and made a book so truly interesting, humorous, sympathetic, and even sometimes bawdy, that you think, 'Why these are people, not historical characters.' But they are."; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
