Short Desription

How we ultimately gained the American Customary System-the last traditional system in the world-and how Gunter''s chain indelibly imprinted its dimensions on the land, on cities, and on our culture from coast to coast is both an exciting human and intellectual drama and one of the great untold stories in American history. Sagely argued and beautifully written, Measuring America offers readers nothing less than the opportunity to see America''s history-and our democracy-in a brilliant new light.
