    Story

    How did America become “one nation, indivisible”? What unified a growing number of disparate states into the modern country we recognize today? To answer these questions, Winchester follows in the footsteps of America’s most essential explorers, thinkers, and innovators. Introducing the fascinating people who played a pivotal role in creating today’s United States, he ponders whether the historic work of uniting the States has succeeded, and to what degree.

    Where does The Men Who United the States rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would rate this book among the better audio books that I have listened to.


    Would you recommend The Men Who United the States to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would recommend this audio book to someone who is interested in the general history of America as it follows mostly white adventurists on there adventures and shortcomings.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The author has a very good and clear voice and the performance was well laid out


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Rather long book 12+ hours would not be something I would want to listen to in one sitting, day, etc


    Any additional comments?

    Delved deeply into subjects, Lewis and Clark for example and then some it just flittered thru the subject example Wounded Knee.
