Let me give you a reference to an EXCELLENT book about Euclidean 
and Non-Euclidean Geometries:

 AUTHOR       Greenberg, Marvin J.
 TITLE        Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometries; development 
and history
                [by] Marvin Jay Greenberg.
 PUBLISHER    San Francisco, W. H. Freeman [1974]
 DESCRIPT     xi, 304 p. illus. 25 cm.
 SUBJECT      Geometry.
              Geometry, Non-Euclidean.
              Geometry --History.
              Geometry, Non-Euclidean --History.
 NOTE         Bibliography: p. [291]-294.
 ISBN         0716704544.

It is a wonderful book that should be accessible to most high 
school students, but has things of value for college students and 
teachers as well.
