I got distracted last week, and read an entire book (review pending, behind the other two books I need to review). So I’m back to reading A People’s History of the United States again. This book reminds me of a sociology class I took in college, only much more interesting than any of the texts we actually used. And without the terrible professor who was fired at the end of the semester.

The rules for Teaser Tuesday, hosted by Miz B of Should Be Reading, are simple:

  1. Grab your current read
  2. Open to a random page
  3. Share two “teaser” sentences from that page (without spoiling the book!)
  4. Include the title and author so others can find the book if they enjoyed your teaser

This week’s teaser:

“They were beginning to resemble that civilization the white men spoke about, making what Van Every called a ‘stupendous effort’ to win the good will of Americans. They even welcomed missionaries and Christianity. None of this made them more desirable than the land they lived on.”

~A People’s History of the United States: 1492-Present, Howard Zinn, page 137
