Down-in-the-mouth blue-staters will find solace in this brilliant and common sense series of lectures on the myths of American history. Dr. Loewen, professor emeritus at the University of Vermont, put his Lincolnesque visage on the cover of this sturdy set; one hopes that listeners across the country will feel the wisdom of this great teacher beaming into their minds. Is it true that Manhattan was purchased by the Dutch from the Indians for $24? Of course not, and Loewen leads us to the truth with incisive questions worthy of a forensic detective. This collection belongs on the shelf of every high school library in the country. With any luck, a copy may be smuggled into Texas. J.W. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE/JULY 05]
