Through the Perilous Fight: From the Burning of Washington to the Star-Spangled Banner: The Six Weeks That Saved the Nation by Steve Vogel
Through the Perilous Fight: From the Burning of Washington to the Star-Spangled Banner: The Six Weeks That Saved the Nation

So glad I decided to read this book. Celebrating 1814 - 2014 and the Francis Scott Key penning of the Star Spangled Banner. So much incredible history written in such a way that it is hard to put down! I would recommend this to all Americans! We have much to be proud of.

This book really explained in detail how the horrors in Berlin were so misunderstood and under appreciated at the time. Everyone should read this book.

I was completely lost in this book for days! The writing is by far the best I have seen in years. Now I am on a quest for more Reynolds Price. I highly recommend this great read.

FANTASTIC!!!!!! I feel as though I just spent 50 or 60 yrs in rural North Carolina with Roxanna Slade and her family. Such beautiful writing...hard to compare to anyone else I have read lately. Highly recommended, I did not want this book to end. I will be on the look out for more Reynolds Price right away...can't get enough of his fabulous prose.

This is a great read...the kind of book you don't want to end! I just hope they don't ruin in when they make the film...too good to ruin.
