On a chance visit to Plymouth Rock, Tony Horwitz makes an unsettling discovery. A history buff since early childhood, expensively educated at university - a history major, no less! - he's reached middle age with a third-grader's grasp of early America. In fact, he's mislaid more than a century of American history, the period separating Columbus' landing in 1492 from the arrival of English colonists at Jamestown in 16-oh-something.

    " A fantastic read, rich with the lost history of America. From Lief Erikson through the Mayflower pilgrims, Horowitz tells the story of our fair land that most of us never heard - the conquistadors' trips through the south and the great plains, the founding of the first European settlement in the US (hint: it wasn't Jamestown), and so much other fascinating stuff. Interspersed are Horowitz's own travels in the present day, which are equally interesting and informative. "

    " Another fascinating book by Horwitz. He has a great job! Love Myth verses History reflection. "

    " Not as funny as "Confederates in the Attic", but then the author wasn't traveling around the American South visiting with locals either. This book certainly helped fill in some holes in my understanding of U.S. history, and I enjoyed his conclusions at the end regarding why we focus on certain bits of history and ignore others. "
