America's history is often told via stories of amazing people: how Columbus braved "the ocean blue" to discover the New World; how Paul Revere endured his midnight ride to warn Concord that "the British are coming!"; how Pocahontas defied her father and saved John Smith; how Betsy Ross designed the first flag of our nation. But many of these tales are heavily embellished or, in some cases, invented out of whole cloth. Author Paul Aron delves into our American mythology (including the tale of Washington's cherry tree and Lincoln's log cabin) to find the truth and, more important, to examine why we tell the stories we do.
