Low vision readers book group
What: Pulitzer Prize-winning historian historian David McCullough follows up “John Adams” by staying with America’s founding, focusing on a year rather than an individual: a momentous 12 months in the fight for independence. How did a group of ragtag farmers defeat the world’s greatest empire? As McCullough vividly shows, they did it with a great deal of suffering, determination, ingenuity — and, the author notes, luck.
