America: The Last Best Hope – Vol I

With command and wit, William J. Bennett reacquaints Americans with their heritage in an engaging narrative that cuts through the cobwebs of time, memory, and prevailing cynicism. Washington, Franklin, Lincoln, Roosevelt, and other reemerge not as marble icons or dust-dry names in a textbook, but as full-blooded, heroic pioneers whose far-reaching vision forged a nation that attracted – and still attracts – millions yearning to breathe free. In this, the first volume of a “reasoned, balanced presentation of the American story,” Bennett tells our nation’s story, with all is triumphs and tragedies. He summons us to embrace America’s cause once again as “the last best hope on earth.”
