America's Hidden History Book Cover


"Writing from a rich font of scholarship, seasoning the facts with wit, irony and a novelist's eye for telling detail, Kenneth C. Davis has conjured back to life some of the most fascinating figures of America's founding decades. All-but-forgotten heroines (Hannah Dustin, Anne Hutchinson, Mary Rowlandson) take their rightful place onstage alongside "great men" (Washington, Revere, Daniel Shays) whose names, until Davis restored them to life, had long eclipsed their striking words and deeds. This is American history in the vibrant narrative tradition of David McCullough and H. W. Brands."

— Ron Powers, co-author of Flags of Our Fathers
