ONE SUMMER, AMERICA, 1927 - Bill Bryson

Cross the Atlantic with Charles Lindbergh, a record breaking season with Babe Ruth, massive flooding of the Mississippi River, Al Capone,mass murder of school children and much much more.

Bryson segues from one topic to another in his usual easy to read informative style.

1927 was a big year for America , lots of good and bad things happened.

Buy this and read it and then  you will read it again as there is far too much information in it to be absorbed in one sitting.

Its not as good as a "Short History of Everything" but that's unfair comparison anyway considering how good that was, but this is close.
