Summary
"Here is the story of America in the twentieth century as told through the lives of twenty-six of its most remarkable and historically crucial men and women." "The people Martin Walker has chosen to portray are presidents, industrialists, artists, thinkers, entertainers, soldiers, spies, criminals, and evangelists, among others, and he makes the life of each individual serve as a framework for a discussion of the nation as a whole in a century when it was reinventing itself."--Jacket
