One Summer: America, 1927 by Bill Bryson

It’s the summer that Charles Lindbergh crossed the Atlantic, Babe Ruth hit 60 home runs, President Coolidge chose not to run, work began on Mount Rushmore, the Mississippi flooded like never before, The Jazz Singer was filmed and television was created.  “All of which Bryson covers in characteristically sparkling prose,” Publishers Weekly.
