Und jedem Streben wohnt ein Glück inne ...

1927. Ein Sommer der ein ganzes Jahrhundert prägte Es ist die Geschichte eines Sommers, und doch ist es so viel mehr. Das Jahr 1927 ist für Amerika entscheidend auf dem Weg zur Weltmacht. Es sind die goldenen Zwanziger: der Aktienmarkt boomt, das Fernsehen wird erfunden, die Filme sind nicht mehr stumm, und verrückte Pläne entstehen, wie der, vier Köpfe in den völlig unzugänglichen Mount Rushmore zu meißeln. Es ist die Zeit, in der ein junger Flieger namens Charles Lindbergh Ruhm und Ehre erlangt, aber auch die des Al Capone und des größten Schulmassakers aller Zeiten. Und in diesen Monaten werden durch fatale Entscheidungen die Weichen für die bevorstehende Weltwirtschaftskrise gestellt. Bill Bryson erzählt davon so spannend, als sei es eine unglaubliche Abenteuergeschichte, voller erstaunlicher geschichtlicher Momente aus der Zeit, als Amerika erwachsen wurde ...
