Enjoy this Grateful American™ reading recommendation!
Whether it’s via their tone, topic, or tenor, certain works just say “America.” Here is one such title, suggested by Grateful American™ Book Prize judge Dr. Douglas Bradburn, president and CEO of George Washington’s Mount Vernon:
- Give Me Liberty: A History of America's Exceptional Idea by Richard Brookhiser. By exploring the singular wisdom and probity of 13 seminal works — including the Declaration of Independence, Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, and William Jennings Bryan’s “Cross of Gold” speech — award-winning historian and biographer Brookhiser makes a persuasive case that the United States truly is unique among nations.
