Simon Winchester, the acclaimed New York Times bestselling author of Atlantic and The Professor and the Madman, delivers his first book about America: a fascinating popular history that illuminates the men who toiled fearlessly to discover, connect, and bond the citizenry and geography of the U.S.A. from its beginnings. How did America become “one nation, indivisible”? What unified a growing number of disparate states into the modern country we recognize today? To answer these questions, Winchester follows in the footsteps of America’s most essential explorers, thinkers, and innovators, such as Lewis and Clark and the leaders of the Great Surveys; the builders of the first transcontinental telegraph and the powerful civil engineer behind the Interstate Highway System. He treks vast swaths of territory, from Pittsburgh to Portland, Rochester to San Francisco, Seattle to Anchorage, introducing the fascinating people who played a pivotal role in creating today’s United States. Throughout, he ponders whether the historic work of uniting the States has succeeded, and to what degree. Featuring 32 illustrations throughout the text, The Men Who United the States is a fresh look at the way in which the most powerful nation on earth came together.

Dr. Michael Jeremiah and his family are professing Christians fulfilling their life dreams. As good Bible students they know that: Some 2000 years ago, Jesus Christ was crucified, buried, and on the third day rose from the dead. He died with a mortal body and was resurrected with an immortal body. Over 500 persons witnessed Him in His resurrected form. After 40 days He gathered His Apostles, and gave orders for their mission on the earth. After He had spoken He was lifted up, as the Apostles watched, a cloud received Him out of their sight as he ascended into Heaven. Two angels standing beside the Apostles said, "This Jesus, who has been taken up from you into Heaven, will come in just the same way as you have watched Him go into Heaven." Other scriptures tell us that some day He will return to the earth. But sometime prior to this, Christ will descend from Heaven with a shout and the trumpet of God to call all true Christians to be caught up in the clouds to meet Him in the air and be taken to Heaven. At the moment of this event, often called the Rapture, Michael and his family look forward to being changed from mortal to immortal bodies and to dwell with God in Heaven forever. THEIR LIVES ARE DISRUPTED by 9/11 and the War on Terror Michael Jeremiah, the Supreme Council and his family are thrust into positions of power in order to save the teetering United States from economic, social and moral collapse. Michael relies on his family ties, placing many of them in key leadership positions. Dr. Tandatina Allio, Michael's wife (a world renown brain surgeon), is his second in command. His father, Vice Admiral John is Director of NSA; his grandfather, Admiral Peter, is Director of Intelligence; his brother Thomas is Secretary General of the UN; and his sister Rebecca is Director of the Red Cross. All the while, Michael Jeremiah and his family move through life with the understanding that the Rapture is near. But, we are getting ahead of ourselves. Let's go back to the beginning of this story. AMERICA IS IN CRISIS. This was the newspaper headline. "America in Crisis". Polls show Americans are fearful of both the present and the future. There seems to be no hope. Americans want - demand that they be rescued, that our nation's many problems be solved. Rescued from what? Solve what problems? A respected panel published a white paper on the subject. They reported: "It is near the end of the George W. Bush administration. The country is being torn apart over the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. At least, at times, it appears to be President Bush's private war. He never asked Congress for a Declaration of War, nor asked the Nation to be directly involved, as it was during World War II. Our military's hands tied by politics. The Nation is in chaos with almost everyone demanding their rights, their freedom to do whatever they wish. Terrorists have attacked again in four cities: more than 30,000 killed. Vicious gangs and drug pushers demand their rights: our police are handcuffed. Purveyors of filth shout freedom of speech; pornography is called art; Christians and Jews are muzzled. Our founding fathers knew that everything has limits and boundaries. The Judeo-Christian ethic provided the moral foundation to go with our rights and freedoms and moral boundaries were set. But now, these moral boundaries are absent and freedoms are turning to license, edging closer and closer to anarchy. Our people do not feel safe sending their children to school, leaving their homes. Fear is everywhere; faith in government is near zero. The People pray for a man a superman a bold knight, to rescue them and the nation." MICHAEL JEREMIAH and the Supreme Council OFFER HOPE During times of crisis, l

As part of the acclaimed Sports Virtues series, "The 1980 Men's and 1998 Women's United States Olympic Hockey Teams: Unity " discusses the struggles and triumphs of each team. As with each story in the Sports Virtues series, this book assigns a virtue to a celebrated athlete, team, or coach, and uses that person or team's story to help the reader achieve that virtue for him or herself.
