I read this book the first time when I was in a class of Professor Goetzmann's in the American Civ graduate program at UT. He's an excellent teacher as well as writer. History is the most fascinating subject often dulled by mediocre writing. This book is a classic and one that should ignite a love of history in those who don't crave it already.
