One Summer: America, 1927 (Unabridged)

by Bill Bryson

Open iTunes to Buy


Audie Award Finalist, History, 2014 One of the most admired nonfiction writers of our time retells the story of one truly fabulous year in the life of his native country - a fascinating and gripping narrative featuring such outsized American heroes as Charles Lindbergh, Babe Ruth, and yes Herbert Hoover, and a gallery of criminals (Al Capone), eccentrics (Shipwreck Kelly), and close-mouthed politicians (Calvin Coolidge). It was the year Americans attempted and accomplished outsized things and came of age in a big, brawling manner. What a country. What a summer. And what a writer to bring it all so vividly alive for us in this certain best-seller.

Customer Reviews


Outrageous characters, immoral insanity, devious dimwits...reassuring to know that wrecklessness, swindling, grandstanding, and outright terrorism is nothing new. Was blissfully unaware of how popular terrorist-bombings were.

One big summer, indeed

Bryson has never let me down. One Summer is delightful in terms of its language, its minutia, and its whimsy.


I look forward to all Bill Bryson titles because regardless of subject matter, his books are nothing short of wonderful.
This book was so interesting and written with such rich detail, Bryson took historical figures from which I had dry, preconceived notions of and made them into characters with depth, context & purpose.

Could not recommend this more and all his other books.
