Product Overview

Kenneth C. Davis presents a collection of extraordinary stories, each detailing an overlooked episode that shaped the nation?s destiny and character. Davis?s dramatic narratives set the record straight, busting myths and bringing to light little-known but fascinating facts from a time when the nation?s fate hung in the balance.

Spanning a period from the Spanish arrival in America to George Washington?s inauguration in 1789, AMERICA?S HIDDEN HISTORY explores these episodes, among others: The story of the first real Pilgrims in America, who were wine-making French Huguenots, not dour English Separatists ? The coming-of-age story of Queen Isabella, who suggested that Columbus pack the moving mess hall of pigs, which may have spread disease to many Native Americans ? The long, bloody relationship between the Puritans and Indians that runs counter to the idyllic scene of the Thanksgiving feast ? The little-known story of George Washington as a headstrong young soldier who committed a war crime, signed a confession, and started a war!

Full of color, intrigue, and human interest, AMERICA?S HIDDEN HISTORY proves why Davis is truly America?s teacher.
