Exploring the undiscovered country, one book at a time.
The Federalist - Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, John Jay, Robert A. Ferguson What a fantastic journey! I'm quite disappointed that I wasn't required to read any of these papers in high school, as well as not having the opportunity to read it any while in college. I definitely was able to see exactly what the founding fathers' intentions were in the development of our constitution. Definitely a must read for everyone to understand why we have the rights we have today.

I also highly recommend that anyone who wants to read The Federalist, that they read Common Sense by Thomas Paine first.
