Ellen’s August Recommendation

 by Jim Rasenberger
america 1908I really enjoyed this book covering diverse events in 1908.  Some events and trends were familiar, but linked together in a much deeper way in the book.  Others were new to me; it’s amazing how much changed in just that one year.
from Book List Review:
“through Rasenberger’s skill, the year 1908 seems like … a cohesive body of events all linked to make something bigger, something grander. He portrays a year in the life of a changing America; whether it is American automobiles and ships prancing around the world or Americans adopting new technologies, it was certain that this country was changing.”
