Books every high school student must read

We’re often asked to give a reading list to people.  The following books should have been read by every high school graduate and therefor every college graduate.  Looking for a gift that will make a difference in their lives?  These are a great start.

Amazon stocks them: 

1984, George Orwell

Brave New World, Aldous Huxley

Atlas Shrugged, Ayn Rand

Liberty and Tyranny, Mark R. Levin

The 5000 Year Leap: A Miracle That Changed the World, W. Cleon Skousen

The Federalist Papers

The Anti-Federalist Papers

Animal Farm, George Orwell

Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury


Obviously, although not books, one should have read The United States Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.
