So American History by the State: Interesting Stories and Random Facts About Texas, California, and New York (History of the United States Box Set, Book 1) by Bill O'Neill and narrated by Derek Newman was a blast to listen to! Highly recommend if you are looking to expand your knowledge, wanting something interesting to pass the time on a road trip, or looking for something new. This book is well researched and well written. It contains a nice variety of facts on Texas, New York, and California. Some examples of what to expect: rattlesnake roundup festival, Jack the Ripper’s tie to Texas, what soft drink was originally going to be named Waco, the start of the underwire bra, Bodacious the bull, Amber Alert origin, Prairie Dog Town, the oldest hospital in America still in operation, what park has been featured in more movies than any other in the world, Macy’s Christmas Day parade and why they went from live animals to balloons, the almost destruction of Grand Central Station and Jackie Kennedy Onassis move to save it, red velvet cake history, the riots over straw hats in 1922, Murder’s Row lineup, Lower Manhattan almost becoming a federal district, the last time Congress convened at New York City Federal Hall, why California was mistakenly named, Doritos started in Anaheim, the Beat Generation subculture, Cobb salad origin, The Cecil Hotel deaths, the Williams sisters, Bethany Hamilton, Michelle Kwan, and so much more. The narrator, Derek Newman, did an awesome job! I would listen to another book by both the author and narrator. I do not have any critique for this book- it’s fantastic! ~A brief description~ Texas Introduction- approximately 3 minutes. 1) History and Random Facts- approximately 35 minutes. 2) Pop Culture- approximately 36 minutes. 3) Inventions, Ideas, and More- approximately 27 minutes. 4) Sports- approximately 27 minutes. 5) Unsolved Mysteries, Supernatural, and Other Weird Facts- approximately 43 minutes. 6) Wildlife, Science, and Other Cool Facts- approximately 35 minutes.

Parental guidance/trigger warnings: There is no swearing. It is pretty family friendly with exception to the chapters on unsolved mysteries, supernatural, and other weird facts- those sections discuss murders, serial killers, missing children, and like subjects. There are mentions of the Cosby show, 9/11 attacks, and OJ Simpson. *I was given a free review copy of the audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. Thank you for allowing me to listen and review the book!

History, celebrities, music, film, sports, murders, hauntings, holiday attractions and beauty spots: they're all here in nice, bite sized offerings to give an overall flavour of the state being discovered. This box set compiles the first three books together of this fun and educational exploration of each of the U.S.states, with Texas, New York and California. I knew Texas was big but I hadn't realized it was the size of two Germany's. Nor that guano played such an huge part in the economy. I guess I hadn't really thought much beyond oil and cattle. Oh, but there is - so much more. And that is what is such fun about these books individually. The reader is taken on a verbal journey found the state in question, past and present, being offered quick and fascinating facts under the separate headings of history, pop culture, ideas and inventions, sports and unsolved crimes and supernatural happenings. And after each chapter is is simple, multi-choice quiz to test one's memory: really useful for those who like entering trivia competitions. Or leave it out if it is not wanted, it is very short: only five questions each time, usually. Not everything about these books is perfect, of course. There are occasional small editing glitches, an unexpected pause in the narration or a stumble over pronunciation There is the annoying repetition of title heading and paragraph beginning, as in: 'One of the most famous trees is located in California. Did you know that one of the most famous trees can be found in California?' This is fine on a visual text page but sounds too repetitious when spoken aloud, especially when occurring frequently in the course of the reading. One of the sentences is superfluous. But it is a minor irritation in an otherwise excellent collection. And Derek Newman's narration is easy to listen to, giving enough tone change to maintain an interest. My thanks to the rights holder of American History by the State who, at my request via Audiobook Boom, freely gifted me a complimentary copy. It was very much appreciated. This whole series is a very pleasurable way of finding out more about the different States of America. It makes learning fascinating and fun. And I recommend this book, and any others in this series, to everyone who has a curiosity for odd facts or just wants to expand their knowledge in a pleasurable way. Oh yes, and that music icon who was voted the 'ugliest man on campus'? If you don't know who it was, then you'll just have to look in 'Texas'.

    This box set is filled with really interesting state facts. I highly recommend it. This is an ideal audiobook for road trips. I found so many interesting things to share with friends. There are quiz and answer sections throughout the book also. I personally didn't care for the supernatural facts as much. There was just so much interesting information...I'll definitely listen to this one again. This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
