John Adams, David McCullough--Share the journey
Original post made by Elizabeth Henin Misich, Another Palo Alto neighborhood, on Jun 8, 2008
Within the first 20 pages I'm floored by the fact that by 1776, the Adams family had been in Massachusetts for 100 years, and impressed by how the context/way of thinking is rolled out. - By page 60, or so, there's the pulsating, prospering, metropolis of Philadelphia. - Even having read a few bios of early Americans and some associated history, this is something else.
