Books, Reviews, Prints


by David McCullough

Whether it’s via their tone, topic, or tenor, certain works just say “America.” Here is one such title, suggested by Chris Stevenson, winner of 2016’s Grateful American Book Prize for The Drum of Destiny.

1776 by David McCullough. Pulitzer Prize-winning historian McCullough so skillfully captures the drama, chaos, and uncertainty of the American Revolution’s early days that readers may momentarily forget George Washington and his army do eventually turn things around.
