I have recommended this book to friends and bought a copy as a gift in our friends Christmas gift exchange.
The characters explored in this book are Babe Ruth, Charles Lindbergh, Sacco and Vanzetti, Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, Henry Ford, among many, many others!

I've enjoyed most of Bryson's books. This one didn't work that well for me as it seemed to jump around rather a lot. The best part was the epilogue!Published 2 days ago by Suzy
