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.
