Description

Walter Lord, who combines a love of great events with a passion for the people who lived through them, brings to life the big moments of this era. You will fight the Boxer Rebellion with an American missionary of amazing military talent. You will watch Theodore Roosevelt go trust-busting; visit that stifling armory the night men went wild for Woodrow Wilson. You will tour the world with the Great White Fleet; battle the flames of San Francisco that day when Caruso, William James, John Barrymore, and Jack London were among those present; race with Peary to the Pole, and parade with the suffragettes down Fifth Avenue. It was a time of triumph - the Wright brothers; and tragedy - the Titanic. Days of opulence - a $200,000 ball; and of poverty - a child in a cotton mill, earning $3.54 a week, but through it all, boundless confidence and hope.
