Review:

Covering more than 1,000 years of American history and popular culture from the 10th through the 20th centuries, Gorton Carruth's American history encyclopedia fills an important niche on the reference shelf. Rigorously indexed and organized chronologically and by subject to tell what was happening at any given time in politics, literature, religion, and fashion, The Encyclopedia of American Facts and Dates is an exceedingly practical and accessible volume, as well as a fine trivia treasure trove. Within its 901 pages, you can learn that Snorro, son of Thorfinn and Gudrid Karlsefni, was the first child born in North America to European parents; that in 1839 Josephine Amelia Perkins was the first woman convicted of horse stealing (having been pardoned twice on account of her sex); and that Margaret Jones was executed for witchcraft in 1648, 44 years before the infamous Salem witch trials.

About the Author:

Gorton Carruth has been an author and editor of reference books for more than forty years and was a founder of The Hudson Group, which has developed a wide variety of informational books. He lives in Briarcliff Manor, NY.
