Tietoja tekijästä

A Harvard University graduate and impassioned student and teacher of American history and literature, Utah-born Bernard de Voto held faculty positions at Northwestern University and Harvard University. He was also the second editor of the Saturday Review of Literature and for many years wrote "The näytä lisää Editor's Easy Chair" column in Harper's magazine. At Harvard, de Voto was the editor of the Mark Twain manuscripts and produced several works about Twain and his time. He is best known for his trilogy-The Year of Decision: 1846 (1943), Across the Wide Missouri (1947), and The Course of Empire (1952). For Across the Wide Missouri, he personally traced the western trails first blazed by Lewis and Clark. Although recent scholarship has changed many perceptions about the West, de Voto's splendid accounts continue to have wide appeal. (Bowker Author Biography) näytä vähemmän

I won this book from Goodreads so I'm sorry to say I didn't care for it. The original copyright is 1948. It seems like it would fit right in on Mad Men but it was hard to enjoy in 2010.

Excellent but Devoto does like to ramble on

America's greatest satirist takes on the not so Holy Bible and thumps it. Imagine the hymn to constipation sung on the Ark. Brilliant, laugh out loud sarcasm unleashed. Completely understandable that he left instructions for this not to be published until after his passing. The only ding is on this particular edition - no lettering on the spine and no page numbers But it was the only edition I could find readily available (I had lost a better edition years ago) and is still required reading. Highly recommended.… (lisätietoja)
