Davis Author, Don't Know Much About History (Avon, 1991) Author, Don't Know Much About the Civil War": Everything You Need to Know About America's Greatest Conflict but Never Learned (Avon, 1997) Many people think of history lessons as a combination of dull details, even duller speeches, memorized dates, timetables and traditions.

Whether it's in print or on the screen, Ray Suarez and guests discuss engaging ways to teach and appreciate history ...on the next Talk of the Nation, from NPR News.
