This was a fascinating book. Most of the events I knew of (although there were a couple of completely new ones), however, the author gave great backdrop and details that fleshed out the stories in new ways. She also had an easy, light style that was very enjoyable. Would be a great addition to a US History study or just a fun read for a fellow history lover. I'm looking forward to checking out more works by this author.
