In the most ambitious one-volume American history in decades, award-winning historian Jill Lepore offers a magisterial account of the origins and rise of a divided nation. In riveting prose, These Truths tells the story of America, beginning in 1492, to ask whether the course of events has proven the nation's founding truths or belied them.

These Truths is one of the best books I have read and should be a requirement for all middle school students in America and all Americans over the age of 14 should buy it. Jill Lenore’s organization and telling of the American story beginning in 1492 is captivating - I was often moved to tears and surprised. Her research and detail are impeccable!!! Read it.
