I'm a high school grad, my knowledge of college level physics is quite rudimentary. I would like to start learning about L & H dynamics. What textbook would you guys recommend for novices?

If your knowledge of college level physics is rudimentary, I'd suggest working through a text like Kleppner & Kolenkow first.

There was also the book Hamiltonian and Lagrangian Mechanics: A Coloring Book for Young Physicists. The author promised a second edition, but I don't know what happened to it.

Some of my favorite mechanics books, in order of sophistication:

French, Newtonian Mechanics
Fowles, Analytical Mechanics
Landau & Lifschitz, Mechanics
