Summary

If you want to discover the captivating history of the United States, then pay attention....

When the first settlers reached the United States of America and started to chip out a living in the wilderness that seemed so fierce and unfamiliar to their European eyes, they could never have dreamed that someday the land upon which they stood would become one of the most powerful countries in the entire world. 

When the preachers of the Great Awakening stood on the backs of wagons or bits of old tree stumps and told the American people a new story of individual freedom and the power of ordinary people, they could never have dreamed that their preaching would trigger a landslide of abolitionism that would end in a civil war that almost tore the entire country apart. 

As for Martin Luther King, Jr., he did dream. He had a dream of equality and brotherhood, and his dream at least partially came true in 2008 when America saw the inauguration of its first black president. Never could the slaves of the great plantations of the South have dreamed that day would ever come, but it did.

Nobody could have dreamed it, but it all came to pass, and it became the history of the United States of America. And this is how it all happened....

Fantastic book

I was embarrassed by many lies told to us about how certain events in our history and world history. Well researched. Sometimes the most interesting parts of our history are events our history books omit.

the REAL Truth

This book is an introduction to the subject of what has happened to America. There's a lot left unsaid and many subjects left untouched.

Overall good history

I am far from politically correct, and Captivating History's book seems to have been written specifically for me to address the lunacy of large, liberal government. More information is given here to explain the idiotic policies than I have encountered on my collective readings and interests.

A well-written tale that presents a exceptional overview of the many currents that form our tumultuous nation. I listened to a few minutes daily and took time to absorb author's wise perspective.

Well known historical facts

The author covers well known historical facts but excels at the inclusion of more history of slavery, segregation, women's rights, racism, and other oft-neglected topics in US history books.

Really well described.

For my flavor, a bit too much detail is paid early on to the consideration of the politics of new government, but overall it is value for money.
