To make the study of history as exciting as life itself, Roderick Nash weaves the story of the American experience around the revealing lives of thirteen significant participants. General themes are clarified and enriched when related to specific personalities. Conversely, the narrative of national events deepens understanding of the individuals. Their personal histories, however, are subordinate to the primary purpose of FROM THESE BEGINNINGS- to give the reader a rich sense of the whole American history. Volume Two treats the frontier, industrialization, civil rights, government, and the state of the American mind by highlighting the personalities of Mark Twain, Jane Addams, Gifford Pinchot, Henry Ford, Martin Luther King, Jr., Neil Armstrong, and Bob Dylan.
