Forty-Two stories of Americana History, the story behind the story, things never published in the history books, but which really make America "America".
A little aged (1976), but a very good read. You'll be tempted to read the whole book in one sitting. However, pace yourself to one a day - you'll find yourself re-reading some of the stories over and over again.
For a trivia nut or history buff - this is a find, for the rest of us its fun to read!
