Book of Great USA Facts and Stories

Here is Where: Discovering America's Great Forgotten History by Andrew Carroll is an imposing book by it’s size, but is a great read!  Carroll uncovers places in the United States which are obscure, yet have important cultural and historical significance.  His writing style easily draws the reader into the book and his adventures.  He did a great deal of research on the various places he traveled to and helps the reader to see places that even those who lived in those locations were unaware of.

There’s a sense of history and adventure; intrigue and mystery woven into most of the stories.  The stories range from inventions to deaths to body snatching and our first venture into World War 2 in an obscure Hawaiian Island I never even heart of.   For anyone who enjoys reading about history, especially forgotten USA history, this is a fun book to have sitting on your coffee table.

I would have really enjoyed pictures of the many places he went to which would have helped make the book even more alive.  Of course that would have added pages, but it would be worth it.

I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for this honest review.
