The following is a brief list of possible books that could be read for extra credit. I would highly recommend reading historical fiction books for this assignment but if a student is interested in a more scholastic approach to this assignment I wanted to give them a few ideas on books that would be good to read. This is a very short list but will be added to as the year progresses.

This book is a VERY solid read for anyone who is interested in learning more about what life was like in the America’s prior to the voyages of Columbus. It gives an interesting update of the advancements made in history and archaeology in this region that often don’t make it into textbooks for years. The author also chooses to stay out of the scholastic squabbles by explaining all viewpoints on a particular subject before explaining his thinking on it. This type of openness is sorely needed in the historical field and leads me to highly recommend the book.

This book gives a clear view of the types of men who became involved in the air war in WWII. It consistently gives biographies of little known men who did extraordinary things during the war. It also goes into great deal explaining the reasons why Japan acted the way it did in war. These explanations are the principle reason for this book being placed on this list, being that they give the reader a more clear idea of the reasons for the start of WWII.
