100 Must-Read Books of U.S. Historical Fiction
"This Independence Day holiday week is a great time to read about America's history. But 1,000-page tomes of dense history are not exactly conducive to beach or picnic reading. How about instead one (or a dozen) of these must read works of historical fiction set in the US? Spanning from pre-America through the 1960s, these books (mostly novels, but at least one play) cover the width swath of both American history and geography. You're bound to find something that rings your patriotic bells."
