The American Spirit: Who We Are and What We Stand For by David McCullough
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Anyone who thinks reading history can be a dry experience has never read any of David McCullough's books. The man is an American treasure. Here, in a series of addresses he's given over the years, he brings the past to life, reminding us of the people who've made this country great. Read it! It's not the old dull history texts you had in school. Here you'll meet the men (mostly, exception Abigail Adams) whose ideas and actions made this a great country. And, if there's a student in your life, do him or her a favor and present this book without fear that they'll be bored.
