Stuff Every American Should Know

Where did Mount Rushmore come from? What’s a bicameral congress? Who was Geronimo, and why do we yell his name when we jump?

Stuff Every American Should Know answers all these questions and many more: How do you bake the perfect apple pie? Who played the first game of baseball? Is it really illegal to tear a dollar bill in half ? Full of illuminating Q&As and helpful how-tos, this Stuff is the perfect gift for Americans of all ages!

DENISE KIERNAN and JOSEPH D’AGNESE are the authors of Signing Their Lives Away (Quirk, 2009), Signing Their Rights Away (Quirk, 2011), and many other nonfiction titles. They live in North Carolina.
