Product Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Travels With George…is quintessential Philbrick — a lively, courageous, and masterful achievement.”—Boston Globe

 
Does George Washington still matter? Bestselling author Nathaniel Philbrick argues for Washington's unique contribution to the forging of America by retracing his journey as a new president through all thirteen former colonies, which were now an unsure nation. Travels with George marks a new first-person voice for Philbrick, weaving history and personal reflection into a single narrative.


When George Washington became president in 1789, the United States of America was still a loose and quarrelsome confederation and a tentative political experiment. Washington undertook a tour of the ex-colonies to talk to ordinary citizens about his new government, and to imbue in them the idea of being one thing--Americans.

In the fall of 2018, Nathaniel Philbrick embarked on his own journey into what Washington called "the infant woody country" to see for himself what America had become in the 229 years since. Writing in a thoughtful first person about his own adventures with his wife Melissa and their dog Dora, Philbrick follows Washington's presidential excursions: from Mount Vernon to the new capital in New York; a month-long tour of Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island; a venture onto Long Island and eventually across Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina. The narrative moves smoothly between the eighteenth and twenty-first centuries as we see the country through both Washington's and Philbrick's eyes.

Written at a moment when America's founding figures are under increasing scrutiny, Travels with George grapples bluntly and honestly with Washington's legacy as a man of the people, a reluctant president, and a plantation owner who held people in slavery. At historic houses and landmarks, Philbrick reports on the reinterpretations at work as he meets reenactors, tour guides, and other keepers of history's flame. He paints a picture of eighteenth century America as divided and fraught as it is today, and he comes to understand how Washington compelled, enticed, stood up to, and listened to the many different people he met along the way--and how his all-consuming belief in the Union helped to forge a nation.

Amazon.com Review

I’ll read anything written by Philbrick ( In the Heart of the Sea, Bunker Hill). With an alchemy of unearthed facts and fascinating figures, his books always deliver a deeper look at the moments of U.S. history that we think we know well but rarely do. In Travels with George, Philbrick entertainingly brings himself into the picture, as he, his wife, and his rambunctious dog, Dora, retrace George Washington’s presidential tours across the brand-new country. Glimpses of our current fractured politics heighten the importance and heroism of Washington’s all-out efforts to mold the ex-colonies into a single national identity—though the continuation of slavery, even within his own household, corroded his efforts. Always extremely readable, Philbrick provides a lot to chew on as he explores what Washington did right, what he did wrong, and how his choices still affect us today. —Adrian Liang, Amazon Editor

Review

"Both a lighthearted travelogue and a timely exploration of Washington’s historical legacy." —The Wall Street Journal

"Philbrick’s book addresses weighty matters but is nevertheless an enjoyable read, a fitting if unusual capstone to a trilogy on the revolution. At times, the book seems like a valedictory. The author’s many readers hope not." —The Guardian

“In Travels With George: In Search of Washington and His Legacy, his 13th book, Nathaniel Philbrick brings his proven gift as a narrator to this on-the-road part of Washington’s life.” —The Washington Post

"Drawing unnerving parallels to the nation’s current political landscape, the writer shows how the lessons taught by the “father of our country” are still relevant today." —Smithsonian

“This delightful book retraces the journey of George Washington across the former colonies shortly after his inauguration. It’s a meditation on our first president’s continued relevance to the American identity.” —Christian Science Monitor

"Part history, part travelogue...Philbrick wrestles with [America's] problems, some of Washington’s vintage, that continue to afflict us." —The New York Times

“Philbrick retraces three trips that George Washington took during his presidency . . . through the pieces, a valuable view of Washington emerges . . . a man of physical grace and character who grasped the personal effect he had on people.” AirMail.com

“Washington emerges as the complicated, flawed but no less heroic leader that his newborn country desperately needed… The quantity and quality of the details Philbrick gathers as he straddles past and present make this an extraordinary read.” —BookPage

"Nat Philbrick brings three key attributes to this brilliant book: a deep grounding in colonial history; amusing personal anecdotes observed with a shrewd traveler's eye; and an abiding love of this quirky, unique nation. Travels with George is all the more crucial in this time of national division when a look back to a unifying figure like our first President matters all the more." —Admiral James Stavridis, USN, 16th Supreme Allied Commander at NATO

“Philbrick moves from one century’s point of view to another’s, perceptively observing what has changed and what has not. He particularly notes the past and current legacy of slaveholding, whether in North or South. This provides highly personal reflection and unique perspective on both the history and the often-contradictory lives of present-day Americans.” Booklist (starred review)

"[An] entertaining mix of history, travelogue, and memoir . . . This poignant account strikes a hopeful chord." Publishers Weekly

"Washington, as portrayed by Philbrick, is an impressive figure who knew that he was a national icon, but this did not go to his head. . . . Though some histories of the era treat slavery as an unfortunate footnote, Philbrick does not shy away from pointing out its evils. When he cuts back to the present, roads and accommodations improve, and he encounters monuments, museums, and local historians who describe details of Washington’s visit and, more often than not, disprove a popular myth." Kirkus Reviews
