With Land of Hope and Glory, Marshall Terry continues the Northway family saga he began with Tom Northway and My Father’s Hands, covering one hundred years of American experience.

In this latest novel, General Marcus Aurelius Northway, a homeopathic physician with deep faith in the curative powers of oil and whiskey, and his indomitable wife Ida Bailey Northway, bring on stage an intriguing set of characters who are their friends—Luther Burbank, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford—as the Northways take part in American history between the Great War and the Great Depression and herald a new age.
