The Year of the Century

A non fiction book by

Dee Brown's sparkling account of a momentous year in American history

In 1876, America was eager to celebrate its centenary, but questioned what might lie ahead. The American Republic had grown to four times its original population, and was in the midst of enormous changes. Industrialization was booming, and new energy sources were being used for fuel and power. People were suddenly less bound to agriculture, and there were revolutions in transportation and communication. It was a time of Indian wars, the first stirrings of the labor movement, and the burgeoning struggle form women's and other civil rights. Historian Dee Brown takes the measure of America in a rare moment of reflection on the nation's past, present, and future.

The Year of the Century was one of Brown's favorites among his works. In page-turning prose, he tells of a tumultuous era and of a young nation taking stock.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Dee Brown including rare photos from the author's personal collection.
