Review: America: A Narrative History

User Review  - Bill Polson - Goodreads

I started reading this book along with 3 others when I was selecting a textbook for my AP classes and as I disliked one it was dropped from the rotation. I'd read one chapter from one book and the next from another. When I finished the process I ended with this one, a great text for US History. Read full review
