Simon Winchester is a New York Times best-selling author and award-winning journalist whose latest non-fiction book offers a deeper assessment of the United States’ beginnings.

“The Men Who United the States: America’s Explorers, Inventors, Eccentrics and Mavericks, and the Creation of One Nation, Indivisible” takes a meticulous and personal look at the men who unified the American population, discovered the country’s geography and formed our society to demonstrate how a disparate nation became “indivisible.”
