A History of the United States I The Birth of the USA Author:R.B. Nye & J.E. Morpurgo This volume is the first of a two-volume History of the U.S.A. now revised and brought completely up to date, which represents a collaborative effort by an Englishman and an American to study American history from its beginnings to the present day.
