Burnham, a teacher and freelance writer, liberally applies a healthy dose of political correctness to the many national historic sites located throughout the United States. The author looks at "history as we like to think it was" and gives us "history as we wish it had been." Taking several broad headings-plantations, missions, railroads, etc.-and offering his own personal reflections following visits, Burnham skewers with wit and intelligence the "official" story at each site. Behind the pretty facades of many of these sites is a multicultural story needing to be told; Dead White European Males were not the only ones responsible for the history made there. This book is guaranteed to offend some and educate many. Recommended for public libraries.
