I love U.S. history, and read anything on topics ranging from the Constitutional Convention to the Civil War, from the Great Depression to to Vietnam. If you love history too, AMERICAN HISTORY IN 100 NUTSHELLS is a must-have reference book because it takes the most famous thoughts and phrases from American history (To the victor belongs the spoils…Don’t trust anyone over 30…The Trail of Tears) and succinctly explains the events they describe. Lots of off-beat trivia! –Stacey Witcraft, Advertising Manager
