Mr. Kerensky's pick for the week:
Title: A Peoples History of the United States
Author: Howard Zinn
This is a revolutionary look at American History as it is examined not from the top-down, but the bottom-up. Zinn focuses on what it was like to be an ordinary member of American society rather than the wealthy 1% or the people with political power. Howard Zinn takes you through a journey from Christopher Columbus' pillaging of the Bahamas all the way up to the turn of the Millennium.
Why you should read this novel:
A well written historical interpretation that flows as though it was fictional tale. You will be introduced to primary and secondary resource material that will leave you saying "Where was this in my 8th Grade American History Class?" If you enjoy history, you will really enjoy this book!
