In such modern classics as Chesapeake, Centennial, Hawaii, Alaska, and Texas, James A. Michener proved time and again that his understanding of and love for his country was unparalleled. This Noble Land is Michener's most personal statement about America, an examination of the issues that threaten to fragment and undermine the nationracial conflict, the widening gulf between rich and poor, the decline of education, the inadequacies of our health care systemas well as a thought-provoking prescription for sustaining our ';outstanding success.'Infused with the wisdom and passion of a lifetime, This Noble Land stands as a wake-up call for a troubled era. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from James A. Michener's Hawaii. Praise for This Noble Land ';A book-length essay on the often worrying, often inspiring course of America in the nine decades of Michener's life.'The Washington Post ';Michener is more interested in fixing the problems than in fixing the blame.'The Dallas Morning News ';Michener's are the beach books that, unlike most other beach books, leave you smarter than you were when you started reading. Each delivers the product of all that research, doled out to the reader at just the right rate. You know right away who the bad guys arethe petty ones, the stingy ones. The heroes are generous and energetic and smart and, above all, unprejudiced. The real-life villains in This Noble Land are the people Michener perceives as ';petty, mean and vengeful.''St. Louis Post-Dispatch ';Stirring . . . an admirable effort to define what has made our country great and how to preserve what is best about it.'Kirkus Reviews
