America's Horrible Histories


America's Horrible Histories

"America's Horrible Histories" is one of the many spin-offs of "Horrible Histories". The series is written by Elizabeth Levy and focus on the history of America and the USA.

The series so far consists of:

*1. "Who Are You Calling a Woolly Mammoth? : Prehistoric America" - (Prehistoric America)
*2. "Awesome Ancient Ancestors! : Mound Builders, Maya, and More" - (Aztecs, Incas, Mayans...)
*3. "Are We There Yet? : Europeans Meet the Americans" - (European Colonization of the Americas)
*4. "Cranky Colonials" - (American Colonies)
*5. "Revolting Revolutionaries" - (American Revolutions)
*6. "Westward Wow" - (The American West)

Controversy of title

According to an extract from [http://content.scholastic.com/browse/collateral.jsp?id=297_type=Contributor_typeId=1623] , Elizabeth Levy stated that America's Horrible Histories is now formally known as America's Funny But True History, bringing some controversy over which books are officially part of which series and which books have which logos on top of them. It seems she decided this before she wrote Westward Wow, soon to be published, so it seems that she may start the official new title for her series after publishing it.
