by James A. Michener. I attempted to read this book sometime in my past but abandoned it for whatever reason. I never finished it. I am reading this book again. I downloaded it from my library. The book itself is over nine hundred pages and with forward it is something over a thousand pages long. Michener was a good writer and his body of work demonstrates that thoughly. If not mistaken he wrote twenty books. I have read some of them. I'm going to add Centennial to those I have read. A thousand pages or so is not so daughtisg as it once was. I am well on my way.
