Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

James A. Michener was one of the world’s most popular writers, the author of more than forty books of fiction and nonfiction, including the Pulitzer Prize–winning Tales of the South Pacific, the bestselling novels The Source, Hawaii, Alaska, Chesapeake, Centennial, Texas, Caribbean, and Caravans, and the memoir The World Is My Home. Michener served on the advisory council to NASA and the International Broadcast Board, which oversees the Voice of America. Among dozens of awards and honors, he received America’s highest civilian award, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, in 1977, and an award from the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities in 1983 for his commitment to art in America. Michener died in 1997 at the age of ninety.

Synopsis:

With his genius for research and his mastery of many cultures, James A. Michener cuts to the heart of the issues that threaten to fragment and undermine America today: racial conflict, the widening gulf between rich and poor, the decline of education, the inadequacies of our health care system. Then he offers a detailed program that will help America sustain what he terms its "outstanding success."

Thought-provoking, opinionated, infused with the wisdom and passion of a lifetime, This Noble Land is at once a wake-up call for our troubled times and a blueprint for our future greatness.
