David McCullough’s bestselling books have created a renaissance of interest in American history. His affinity for morally complex subjects results in fascinating, in-depth biographical studies. He has twice received the Pulitzer Prize, for Truman and John Adams, and twice received the National Book Award, for The Path Between the Seas and Mornings on Horseback. McCullough is the recipient of numerous awards and honors including the Presidential Medal of Freedom—the nation’s highest civilian award. The Greater Journey is a chronicle of the many gifted and ambitious young Americans whose time in 19th century Paris changed the course of American literature, medicine, art, architecture, music, and dance.
