"Richard Heffner has assembled a portable canon of American documents that take us across the depth and breadth of our national experience. Here is fertile soil for exploring our past and imagining our future. Present crises notwithstanding, you cannot spend time within these pages and be skeptical of our capacity to overcome, survive, and thrive in the endless, vexing, and robust pursuit of a more perfect union."--Bill Moyers

Simply the best such anthology available."--David M. Kennedy, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Freedom from Fear
