Crossing the Delaware and I-78
In this often hilarious journey Sullivan shows us how close we are to our own history.
A Best Nonfiction Book of 2012. "A nostalgic, witty, and always informative topographic retrospective of the sites pertinent to the American Revolution takes Vogue contributing editor and journalist Sullivan to the action seen by the middle colonies especially - New York, Connecticut, and New Jersey... Sullivan's historic anecdotes form a loose-limbed, irreverent, surprising take on American history." - Publishers Weekly
