Historical tidbits that will whet your appetite
March 30, 2003
This little book(The Greatest Stories Never Told) is like an old-fashioned sweet shop, full of tasty morsels, including the fact that the Scottish kilt was invented by an Englishman, how the Dutch swapped nutmeg for Manhattan and the role of "beere" in the Mayflower's landing at Plymouth Rock. A delightful book to arm one for the next dull cocktail party.
