You are there, in 1787 at America's constitutional convention, with the inside story as veteran print and broadcast journalist Jeffrey St. John "reports" each day's proceedings, flavoring his dispatches with quotes from private correspondence and notes of the delegates. He captures the frustration, conflict, hope, and despair of America's founders during that long, sweltering summer session, as the political future of the country hangs in the balance. It is an enthralling story, never before told in this journalistic form.
"[Riggenbach] has a good sense of how to make history interesting....[He] gives the delegates a forum to air their views, but his voice never intrudes on the weight of their words." (AudioFile)
