Apples of Gold: Voices from the Past That Speak to Us Now is the story of America from the landing of the Mayflower to World War I. It is a sketch of American history through the eyes of some of the participants and their observations through original quotes. How did we come to have the culture we have that integrates so beautifully with the missions of the Founding documents that we still honor today? Who were the quiet influencers that guided our paths or threw us into the abyss of mistakes? America came into its own after the American Revolution and the philosophy that strongly guides our system is the Scottish Enlightenment. Soon, however, we were taken downstream into Romanticism and then the German Ideologies. The book stops at World War I as the significant demarcation line in our history. Miss Boyd recognizes the contributions of all points of view and presents guidance from our history that might light our way into the future.
"Boyd has written the most readable book about the story of America that has been published in years Apples of Gold will now be at my right hand and will be used quite often as a guide to my readings of American history. A must-read for all." - Richard Spencer, The Cape Gazette
