Two Books by Award Winning Author, David McCullough
Our church library has two books by David McCullough whose many awards include the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest award presented to a civilian.
“The Pioneers, the Heroic Story of the Settlers Who Brought the American Ideal West”, hot off the printing press (2019), is an historical fiction account of the early settlers of the Northwest Territory-specifically to the Ohio wilderness and what was to become the town of Marietta, Ohio. Believing that “history is the story of people”, McCullough tells the story through five major characters who set out to settle in the wilderness empire northwest of the Ohio River. The settlers were to enforce three remarkable conditions: freedom of religion, free education and the prohibition of slavery. McCullough drew much of his material from rare and little-know diaries and letters. These pioneers faced incredible hardships to build a community based on ideals that would come to define the United States.
“The Wright Brothers” is a non-fiction account of the lives of Wilbur and Orville Wright, the two Ohio bike machinist brothers whose work and many failures led to the invention of the “flying machine”. Many of our congregation have visited the Wright Brothers National Memorial on the Outer Banks. Read the book to learn more details about their lives and their experiments.
Visit the church library to find these two books and many more interesting books.
