The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris, 1830-1900
The Greater Journey Americans in Paris 1830-1900 Author:David McCullough David McCullough tells the story of the American artists and scientists who studied in Paris, and changed America through what they learned there.
I was not as engaged in this book as others in my book club were. Interesting survey of a period of history, but the book draws no conclusions about the significance of all the American scientists, artists, and doctors who lived and worked in Paris. I loved McCullough's books on Teddy Roosevelt and John Adams and was expecting more depth on individuals.
