But what unified a growing number of disparate states into the modern country we recognize today? Simon Winchester follows the footsteps of America's most crucial innovators, thinkers and explorers, from Lewis and Clark, to the builders of the first transcontinental railroad and the curmudgeonly civil engineer who oversaw the creation of more than three million miles of highway. Winchester travels across vast swaths of the American landscape, from Pittsburgh to Portland, Seattle to Anchorage and Truckee to Laramie, using the five classical elements-Wood, Earth, Water, Fire, and Metal-to chart the contributions these adventurous leaders made to connect the diverse communities within the United States and ensure the future of the American project begun in 1776. The Men Who United the States is an unforgettable journey of unprecedented scope across time and open spaces, providing a new lens through which to view American history, led by one of the most gifted writers., HIS036000, HISTORY / United States / General, HISTORY US, IG$A, Includes bibliographical references (pages 441-449) and index., Includes bibliographical references (pages 635-653), Inventions, Inventors, LP HISTORY US, Large type books., MWT11586933, Made available through hoopla, Maps on endpapers., Midwestrda, Mode of access: World Wide Web., Nationalism, New York, NY :Harper,[2013], New York, NY :HarperLuxe, an imprint of HarperCollinsPublishers,[2013], NjBwBTengNjBwBTrdaNjBwBT, Read by the author., The author follows in the footsteps of America's most essential explorers, thinkers, and innovators to offer a new perspective on how the most powerful nation on Earth came together., The men who united the States :America's explorers, inventors, eccentrics, and mavericks, and the creation of one nation, indivisible /Simon Winchester., The men who united the states :America's explorers, inventors, eccentrics and mavericks, and the creation of one nation, indivisible /Simon Winchester., The men who united the states :America's explorers, inventors, eccentrics, and mavericks, and the creation of one nation, indivisibleSimon Winchester., Unabridged., United States, Winchester, Simon,author., Winchester, Simon., Winchester, Simon.Men who united the StatesNew York, NY : Harper, 2013, [United States]:Harper Collins Publishers,2013., bl2013043110, computerc, data file, digital, eAudiobook hoopla, hoopla digital., https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/hpc_9780062080257_180.jpeg, n-us---, online resourcecr, spoken wordspw, text, texttxt, unmediated, unmediatedn, volume, volumenc, xxv, 463 pages :illustrations, maps ;24 cm., xxxiii, 653 pages (large print) :illustrations ;23 cm., ©2013
