About the Book

“History in Davis’s hands is loud, coarse, painful, funny, irreverent—and memorable.”
San Francisco Chronicle

Following on his New York Times bestsellers America’s Hidden History and Don’t Know Much About History, Ken Davis explores the next chapter in the country’s hidden history: the gritty first half of the 19th century, among the most tumultuous in the nation’s short life.

Critical Praise

Praise for America’s Hidden History: “American history in the vibrant narrative tradition of David McCullough.” — Ron Powers, author of Flags of Our Fathers

“Davis is a fine writer who uses a fast-moving narrative to tell these stories well... This is an informative and enjoyable work.” — Booklist
