Description
(First Edition, Signed Bookplate) For more than two centuries, E pluribus unum has appeared on America's seals and currency. Here the author of The Meaning of Everything, Krakatoa, and Atlantic considers how various, often wildly disparate territories and states united "from many into one," and the breathtaking achievements of those who tied the new nation together—first through wood, earth, and water, and then with fire and steel. Simon Winchester follows in the footsteps of innovators, thinkers, and explorers from Lewis and Clark and the builders of the transcontinental railroad to the curmudgeonly civil engineer who oversaw the creation of the interstate highway system. We are pleased to offer this "charming and entertaining history" (NYTBR) in a first edition with a signed bookplate.

"Simon Winchester never disappoints, and The Men Who United the States is a lively and surprising account of how this sprawling piece of geography became a nation. This is America from the ground up. Inspiring and engaging."—Tom Brokaw

"Winchester provides surprising insights into our social history, further enriching his narrative with accounts of his personal odysseys around the country. The results are ... new and stimulating perspectives on the history of America."—Library Journal
