    The Greater Journey is the enthralling, inspiring—and until now, untold—story of the adventurous American artists, writers, doctors, politicians, architects, and others of high aspiration who set off for Paris in the years between 1830 and 1900, ambitious to excel in their work.

    John says: "Priceless! Best book I've read in years"

    McCullough is simply sublime at weaving history for the layman. Being a layman himself and not a professional academic, his approach is soft, focusing on the important people of the 19th century who traveled to Paris from the US. The book gives the listener a great street-level view of French history along with a peek into 19th art, architecture, and medicine. Also, you can't beat the soothing tones of Edward Hermann.
