In a collection of original essays, the venerated television journalist, Dan Rather, celebrates our shared values and what matters most in our great country, and shows us what patriotism looks like. Writing about the institutions that sustain us, such as public libraries, public schools, and national parks; the values that have transformed us, such as the struggle for civil rights; and the drive toward science and innovation that has made the United States great, Rather will bring to bear his decades of experience on the frontlines of the world's biggest stories, and offer readers a way forward. After a career spent as reporter and anchor for CBS News, where he interviewed every living President since Eisenhower and was on the ground for every major event, from the assassination of John F. Kennedy to Watergate to 9/11, Rather has also become a hugely popular voice of reason on social media, with nearly two million Facebook followers and an engaged new audience who help to make many of his posts go viral. With his famously plainspoken voice and a fundamental sense of hope, Rather has written the book to inspire conversation and listening, and to remind us all how we are ultimately united.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Rather offers a smooth, easy-on-the-ears reading. Because he cares so deeply about his subject and because portions of his book are highly personal, there is an undertone of emotion in his delivery. That emotion never rises to the level of stridency, and the control he demonstrates adds even more power to his reading. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“Interweaving sweet personal stories with history, [Rather] makes a simple, compelling case for America…a clear-eyed love letter to USA. A tonic for disaffected millennials and conservative grandpas alike.” People magazine
“One of American’s most trusted voices…reminds us what’s great about this country in a time of unprecedented polarization.” Entertainment Weekly
“A tonic for our times…[Rather] gives voice to the marginalized and rips off the journalistic shield of objectivity to ring the alarm bell when he witnesses actions he fears undermine the principles of American democracy. That, undoubtedly, is patriotic. And it takes courage.” USA Today
“[A] much-needed collection of essays from Rather on American values, from the importance of empathy, inclusion, and service to the qualities that helped found the nation.New York Post
