by William Langewiesche
Within days after Sept. 11, William Langewiesche had secured unrestricted, around-the-clock access to the World Trade Center site. "American Ground" is a tour of this intense world and those who improvised the recovery effort, and in the process reinvented themselves. Langewiesche reveals the unbuilding to be uniquely American and oddly inspiring, a portrait of resilience and ingenuity in the face of disaster.
