Written at a moment when America's founding figures are under increasing scrutiny, the author, retracing George Washington's journey as a new president through all thirteen former colonies, paints a picture of eighteenth-century America as divided and fraught as it is today.
<b>Nathaniel Philbrick</b> grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and earned a BA in English from Brown University and an MA in America Literature from Duke University, where he was a James B. Duke Fellow. He was Brown University’s first Intercollegiate All-American sailor in 1978, the same year he won the Sunfish North Americans in Barrington, Rhode Island. After working as an editor at <i>Sailing World</i> magazine, he wrote and edited several books about sailing, including <i>The Passionate Sailor, Second Wind</i>, and <i>Yaahting: A Parody</i>.     In 2000, Philbrick published the <i>New York Times</i> bestseller <i>In the Heart of the Sea,</i> which won the National Book Award for nonfiction. The book is the basis of the Warner Bros. motion picture <i>Heart of the Sea</i>, directed by Ron Howard and starring Chris Hemsworth, Cillian Murphy, Brendan Gleeson, Benjamin Walker, Ben Wishaw, and Tom Holland. The book also inspired a 2001 Dateline special on NBC as well as the 2010 two-hour PBS American Experience film <i>Into the Deep</i> by Ric Burns.   Philbrick’s writing has appeared in <i>Vanity Fair</i>, <i>The</i> <i>New York Times Book Review</i>, <i>The</i> <i>Wall Street Journal</i>, the <i>Los Angeles Times</i>, and the <i>Boston Globe</i>. He has appeared on the <i>Today</i> show, <i>The Morning Show</i>, <i>Dateline</i>, PBS’s <i>American Experience</i>, C-SPAN, and NPR. He and his wife live on Nantucket.
