The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris by David McCullough
The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris

kskolba, January 19, 2012

These are well-told tales of the 19th century Americans who fell in love with Paris,from artists and physicians to travelers and fair-goers. The intellectual and social openness that distinguished the City of Light enhanced the growth of new ideas in vastly different arenas of accomplishment. Civil and class wars are not ignored, but one is swept along the currents of French history on scraps of diaries and letters home, never tiring of the trip, never forced to memorize a date.
