America Unabridged: The Readers Respond

April 2024
1min read

A definitive guide to the greatest books about our past without mentioning the Dutch possession of New York? How about The Island at the Center of the World , by Russell Shorto. Better still, A Sweet and Alien Land , by Henri and Barbara Van der Zee, which even Shorto didn’t mention.

We hope you enjoy our work.
