Twain has aptly summarized Fenimore Cooper for all the world to laugh at. I'll will be happy to object to Ayn Rand's titles mentioned earlier in this thread. Regardless of your take on her philosophy/politics, her fiction is transparent propaganda with comic book characters. For America's greatest book, I might suggest Carl Sandburg's Abraham Lincoln. But Moby Dick, Leaves of Grass, To Kill A Mockingbird and The Sound And The Fury are also outstanding.
