we're reading "two years before the mast" right now and we're going to read the autobio of jackie robinson later. we're covering pretty much everything that happens to the us since it's "discovery." can you suggest something for me to read that would apply? the prof was thinking about having us read the 9/11 book deal, but we're not going to.. and i would do that, but i think it's really long, isnt it? so any *good* history(ish) book that you can suggest? please?
