Description

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.

Over the course of his distinguished career, David 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 a bitter election campaign that has left the country divided, McCullough has collected some of his most important speeches in a brief volume designed to identify important principles and characteristics that are particularly American. The American Spirit reminds us of core American values to which we all subscribe, 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.

  • (5/5)
    Excellent book. It’s a masterpiece of Americanism. Davis is so talented.
  • (5/5)
    I love history. And David McCullough never fails to eloquently read and educate with his writing. It was as if I was still in the classroom listening to my teacher.
  • (5/5)
    All of David McCullough’s works are well worth the read (or listen). All Americans and aspiring Americans of all ages should read this one, especially. In fact, halfway through listening to it, I purchased a hard copy - something I could read and re-read, underline and annotate. History and the personalized stories comprising history offers valuable perspective not available elsewhere.
