Tory's review Jun 7, 2007
I had seen the book on the 700 Club TV show a couple of years back and wanted to wa it 'till it came down in price. I knew I'd be able to get on one Alibris for much cheaper, so I did.
The book was a lot more than I was ready for. I was thinking (for some reason) that it'd be a couple of hundred pages but is over 800. It will take me months to finish. I'm at page 217 and haven't even got to the civil war.
So far it has been very enlightening. Of particular interest to me has been the way the book brings out the ongoing battle between state sovereignty and federal sovereignty. I would have liked to see more of the history of the American indians at the beginning of the book, but that's just me.
If you love history and you've got stickability, then get it, you'll enjoy it.
