Please, please read this book! If you read nothing else this year, read Snow-storm in August. Morely's excellent writing style makes it easy and enjoyable to read. It is an outstanding presentation of an historical event which is free of the stuffiness books of this genre usually fare. You will certainly be informed, re-introduced to the "great men" in American history, and find yourself laughing out loud.
