REMEMBRANCE ROCK

This is a reach up- but worth it in its compassing of the American Dream in scope, imagination, drama, in greatness and littleness. The epic of our history highlighted in three vital periods:- (a) 17th century England and the pilgrim story, the early years in Plymouth, the break for a new meaning in religious liberty when Roger Williams left the Massachusetts Bay colony; (b) the march of events leading up to and culminating in the American Revolution- the birth of political liberty; (c) westward journeyings and the Civil War dividing households and communities....His people live -- they stand for what America is. And the prologue and epilogue, America today with the challenge of tomorrow, makes the book contemporary in appeal. It is the book of a poet, an historian, a biographer, a storyteller.
