The Dawn of Flight, the Race to the Pole, the Invention of the Model T, and the Making of A Modern Nation
"By turns gripping and humorous, shocking and delightful, Jim Rasenberger's America, 1908 brings to life our nation as it was one hundred years ago, at a moment of delirious optimism and pride, a time when Americans believed that even the most intractable problems would soon be solved and that the future was bound to be better than the past." "Shedding new light on stories we thought we knew and telling fresh stories we can't believe we've never heard, America, 1908 is a rousing chronicle of a country on the brink of greatness - and a timely, thought-provoking glimpse at a younger America, even as we wonder what awaits us in the century ahead."--BOOK JACKET.
