The Saga of American Society by Dexter Wecter
The Saga of American Society by Dixon Wecter.
This is one of the great classic books written about America's Gilded Age. It is available to read online at Internet Archive, but I would also recommend buying it or taking it out of your library. It has some wonderful illustrations, which do not show up well on the Internet Archive scans. Below are some of the sources that you can read or find the book to buy. This list is also wonderful to search for other rare books. Google Books does not have this as a preview, but do use the site to find other books. Just click on eBook for complete copies to read.
