The American Spirit

The American Spirit by David McCullough is a collection of his favorite speeches over the years, given mostly at commencements and dedications. The consistent message is the importance of history in informing our American values, with a reminder that we share a great deal of important qualities such as a fundamental decency, bravery and optimism. It’s a perfect book to dip in and out of this time of year. He is a marvelous writer. (Non-Fiction)
