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.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Review by Doug Seaberg | 2/10/2014

    " A light and quick read for a history book. Not terribly profound, but contains some things they didn't teach in school that are worth knowing. I remain struck by how deeply the shaping of American history was impacted by the bloody battle between Catholicism and Protestantism and by how brutal and savage that battle was. "

    " This book seemed more like a political statement by Kenneth C. Davis than a history book. "
