The American Catholic Almanac by Brian Burch and Emily Stimpson

This is an interesting and enjoyable series of vignettes about the important role that Catholics have played in American history. It includes the story of the great Buffalo Bill who converted on his deathbed, the gangster Al Capone who founded Chicago's first soup kitchens and the first immigrant on Ellis Island.

It is a bit difficult to read too much of this book at a time, but that's true of most collections of articles, I think. I recommend it if you are interested in reading uplifting true stories about American Catholics.
