U.S. Historical Novels – A “Novel” Way to Learn History

What can we learn about history from historical novels? Blaine Davies describes U.S. historical novels and explains how they help us better experience the dramatic events that shaped our nation first hand. History is a lot more interesting when you explore it from a “present” perspective when the people that were there didn’t know the outcome. Professor Davies describes a wide range of U.S. historical novels dealing with almost every aspect of U.S. history and discusses how a well written novel makes history come alive.
