America's Hidden History
Untold Tales of the First Pilgrims, Fighting Women and Forgotten Founders Who Shaped A NationDownloadable Audiobook - 2011
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 details 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 that may have spread disease to many Native Americans.
