The Secrets of Monument Valley

The vast Navajo Tribal Park on the border of Arizona and Utah stars in dozens of Hollywood movies, but its true attractions remain largely hidden to visitors. Award-winning journalist, author, and frequent National Public Radio and New York Times contributor Tony Perrottet uncovers its treasures.

The story of Napoleon's privates triggered Perrottet's quest to research other such exotic sagas from history, to discover the actual evidence behind the most famous age-old mysteries: Did Churchill really send condoms of a surprising size to Stalin? Were champagne glasses really molded upon Marie Antoinette's breasts? What was JFK's real secret service? What were Casanova's best pickup lines? Napoleon's Privates is filled with offbeat, riotously entertaining anecdotes that are guaranteed to amaze, shock, and enliven any dinner party.
