In just under 15 hours this audiobook covers the evolution of the American nation from 1783, when the Constitution was ratified, to 1850, when the young republic had completed its span of the continent. Narrator Graham Winton establishes a sustained and sustaining tone that is a necessary center for a narrative that is essentially a textbook arranged topically by broad elements such as "boundaries" and "race." Impressively, this is also a continental history, involving land disputes with Britain, France, Spain, Russia, and vast numbers of Indigenous peoples, as well as growing party divisions. Winton is eminently listenable, a most agreeable agent for a narrative that is concise and admirably compressed but also vast, many-branched, and highly contentious.
