In the most ambitious one-volume American history in decades, award-winning historian Jill Lepore offers a magisterial account of the origins and rise of a divided nation. In riveting prose, These Truths tells the story of America, beginning in 1492, to ask whether the course of events has proven the nation's founding truths or belied them.

I found the content interesting but was very put off by the authors narration. She would rush certain parts, try to change her voice to no effect. Probably should have got a professional to read this
