Great expectations : America and the baby boom generation by Landon Y Jones ( Book )
12 editions published between 1980 and 2008 in English and held by 1,817 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the Blurb: Great Expectations is the story of 75 million Americans born between 1946 and 1964, a baby boom so extraordinary that it has affected every aspect of our society, from fads, fashions and music, to education, crime rates and Social Security. From the first, the post-World War II baby boomers were endowed with great expectations: they would be the biggest, richest, best educated generation America has ever known. They made the '50s a child-oriented society, the '60s a period of stormy adolescence, and now their adult concerns have become national obsessions. Their shared experience has shaped them like no other generation. They have transformed the way America looks at work, women, divorce, and parenting (nearly one-half of their children are expected to grow up in single-parent households). But today they are a generation of uncertainty, unsure about their role in society and marriage, unsure even about reproducing themselves. Great Expectations is the story of a generation whose numbers are at once its greatest strength and its tragic limitation, and of a society unprepared to meet the demands of the explosion in its midst
William Clark and the shaping of the West by Landon Y Jones ( Book )
7 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 1,527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Between 1803 and 1806, Meriwether Lewis and William Clark co-captained the most famous expedition in American history. But while Lewis ended his life just three years later, Clark, as the highest-ranking federal official in the West, spent three decades overseeing the expedition's consequences: Indian removal and the destruction of Native America. In a combination of story-telling and scholarship, author Landon Y. Jones presents Clark's life and career in their full complexity."--Jacket

"The journals of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark remain the single most important document in the history of American exploration.

Landon Jones has selected the most memorable journal entries left behind by Lewis and Clark, and edited them for all readers -- those steeped in the lore of the expedition, as well as newcomers to the unforgettable journey"--Book description
