Charles Lindbergh, Al Capone, Calvin Coolidge and Babe Ruth among others, all play a part in this fascinating account of the U.S in 1927 and the surrounding years. If you're familiar with the writing of Bill Bryson you'll know how easy and entertaining a writer he is. If not you have a treat in store.
