Kenneth C. Davis presents a collection of extraordinary stories, each detailing an overlooked episode that shaped the nation's destiny and character. Davis' 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. Download and start listening now!

    • 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. "
