The Men Who United the States Reviews
"Winchester, a Brit who recently became an American citizen, also incorporates personal travel anecdotes to comment on pivotal locations. This bold decision is the key to the book's greatest achievement: conveying the large-scale narrative of unification via the small-scale experience of the individual - the creation of a people by the agglomeration of persons." - Publishers Weekly
