One Summer: America, 1927

One Summer: America, 1927 - Bill Bryson "A glorious look at one summer in America...Bryson offers delicious detail and breathtaking suspense about events whose outcomes are already known."
Booklist, Starred Review

"...Bryson himself is captivated by the events of summer, 1927. And why not? They included Charles Lindbergh's solo flight over the Atlantic, Sacco and Vanzetti's execution, Gutzon Borglum's start on the sculpting of Mt. Rushmore, the Dempsey-Carpentier fight, and Babe Ruth's 60 home runs—all of which Bryson covers in characteristically sparkling prose."
Publishers Weekly

"The book's strength is in showing the overlap of significant events and the interaction of personalities."
Library Journal
