Centennial

Centennial - James A. Michener as always, i love his historical detail and the vast amount of information he provides. he chose a weird way to do it in this book, though, and it detracted because it was so undeveloped and obviously a tool to get his research across. the middle of this book was extremely compelling to me; the rest less so. although i do, of course, love his discourse on how we're destroying the world, and i wept for what seemed like days when reading about what i hope is the blackest blight in american history (but i think there's unfortunately a lot to choose from) - the government's treatment of the native americans.
