To understand where we are and where we may be heading in the new millenium, we must reflect on how civilization got to it's current state of affairs. " - Douglas Brinkley. In this rich and inspiring book, the acclaimed historian Douglas Brinkley takes us on the incredible journey of the United States - a nation formed from a vast countryside on whose fringes a few small colonies made a bold cast at freedom, then burgeoned into an expanding democracy, and ultimately flourished as a world power. From the first primitive maps outlining a New World to the faded daguerrotypes of young men in uniforms standing beside Confederate flags, to pictures of hopeful immigrants arriving at Ellis Island; to the stirring photographs of civil rights marchers, the terrible images of the Oklahoma City Federal Building bombing - the History of the United States offers a stunning album of people and events. This book contains over 500 beautiful images and deluxe custom maps. The jacket has a small tear at each top corner, and is bent a bit at the spine ends. Includes a selected bibliography and index. An over-sized, heavy book.; 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall
