I am looking for a recommendation for a non-fiction book for a gift. Preferably history, social science, biography, or political science and slight preference to American subject matter.
Warmth of Other Suns was my first choice, but giftee has already read it.

Just discovering Tristan Gooley who writes about being able to read significance of various parts of nature/geology /meteorology and related for walkers etc.Not sure if he's more UK based or what but pretty informative.
