I started this book a couple of years ago and really loved it. I don't know why I stopped reading it. It is a group of short stories about American history and the brave souls who lived here. It is set up from earliest to latest. My favorite was "Davy Crockett Reports from Inside the Alamo". That is powerful. I am about 1/3 of the way through this.
