Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book is a gift. . . . It's a powerful argument for keeping history alive." -- Michael Schaub ― NPR

“[McCullough] is one of the great historical storytellers of his generation. . . . Fundamentally Mr. McCullough loves the American story and its most illustrious characters.” -- Robert W. Merry ―
The Wall Street Journal

“A national treasure, McCullough performs a national service in
The American Spirit. Insightful and inspirational, it summons a vexed and divided nation to remember - and cherish - our unifying ideas and ideals.” -- Jay Strafford ― Richmond Times Dispatch

"McCullough's passion for history and his profound belief in America, or at least his vision of America . . . is both encompassing and deeply hopeful. . . .Clio, the muse of history, smiles and nods her head on every page."  ―
Kirkus Reviews

“McCullough perfectly embodies the part of remember-in-chief. . . . Happily, the same qualities that inform McCullough’s histories and biographies also shape his speeches. He is, whether at his desk or a lectern, a consummate storyteller.”
  -- Danny Heitman ―
Christian Science Monitor

“Very few among us possess the encompassing and informed perspective on America’s past and present that historian and best-selling author McCullough has gained over decades of research. . . . McCullough’s legions of fans will flock to this edifying collection.” ―
Booklist

“A carefully crafted, well-reasoned, heartfelt testament to what this nation can be — past, present, and we must believe — future.”

  -- Barbara Hall ―
The Providence Journal

“Acclaimed historian David McCullough’s
The American Spirit is as inspirational as it is brilliant, as simple as it is sophisticated. It will at the same time make you laugh and give rise to tears of despair. . . . This is not patriotic boilerplate. McCullough is a historian and a realist. He sees his nation with all its warts, beginning with its indelible birthmark of slavery and continuing through to today’s government dysfunction and political polarization. Yet he remains confident and upbeat.” -- Edward Cuddihy ― Buffalo News

"This collection captures McCullough's passion and vigor throughout. . . . [His] enthusiasm for history is infectious." -- Andrew Carroll ―
The Los Angeles Review of Books
