America's Hidden History: Untold Tales of the First Pilgrims, Fighting Women and Forgotten Founders Who Shaped a Nation Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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

Spanning a period from the Spanish arrival in America to George Washingtons inauguration in 1789, AMERICAS 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, AMERICAS HIDDEN HISTORY proves why Davis is truly Americas teacher.

Synopsis:

The author of the "New York Times" bestseller "Don't Know Much About History" presents a collection of extraordinary stories--untold tales of the first Pilgrims, fighting women, and forgotten founders who shaped the nation's destiny and character. Abridged. 5 CDs.
