    "Lies my Teacher Told Me" is a good book, but it doesn't cover anywhere near everything in American history, and is really more about how history is written than about the history itself.

    "A People's History of the United States" is pretty good, widely available, and covers all of American history. It doesn't, however, cover what most people think of as the basics -- meaning Presidents and politics.
