James Sturm's America: God, Gold, and Golems
Focusing on less sensational times in U.S. history (non-war and pre-Depression) James Sturm's America draws a portrait of the people and their dreams that make up this country. Comprised of three chapters—"The Revival," "Hundreds of Feet Below Daylight," and "The Golem's Mighty Swing"—the stories grow as the country grows: from pioneers searching for a place to call home to ghost towns gutted by greed and racism to the distractions and fantasies of popular entertainment.
