Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If so:
Bill Bryson - "A Walk in the Woods" - humor and environmentalism.
James Michener - "Hawaii" or "Chesapeake" - excellent writing and neutral viewpoint.
Howard Zinn - "Peoples' History of the U.S." - reality-based U.S. history.
J.R.R. Tolkien - anything - western mythos.
P. Wodehouse - "Wooster (sp?) and Jeeves" - the real deal on British 'upper class', except for the bloodthirsty bits.
