Author(s): Terry Deary
The history of the USA as only Terry Deary can tell it – filled with mean and nasty bits! From cruel Columbus’s first cross-Atlantic cruise, to the first savage settlers, to the wicked Wild West and beyond. Includes chapters on everything from potty presidents to the very uncivil war and with a cast of characters that includes Billy the Kid and Calamity Jane, Abe Lincoln, Al Capone and Bonnie and Clyde. History has never been so horrible . . . or so entertaining.
