Kenneth C. Davis, author of the phenomenal New York Times bestseller Don't Know Much About History, 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 is an iconoclastic look at America's past, connecting some of the dots between history and today's headlines, and proving why Davis is truly America's teacher. Find out: Which Pilgrims arrived in Florida fifty years before the Mayflower sailed. What Supreme Court Justice went to prison. What traitor is honored with a statue for his bravery. Which fighting woman in colonial New England scalped her Indian captors.

An interesting book and well worth the read, but although I am interested in history, especially what doesn't make it into history books, or is barely glossed over, this didn't quite measure up. Worth a read though.
