Hey yall. I’ve been tagged by Charlene Newcomb to participate in listing five of my favorite historical novels. Now, most of you all know I’m in to fantasy, but I do venture out on occasion. When I was a teen I read anything and everything that I could get my hands on, but I didn’t really keep up with it all, thus my memory is a little rusty. So without further ado, my five favorite historical reads…although I might have to fudge the genre a bit. 🙂
Christy by Catherine Marshall
Changed my life. I stopped reading for almost ten years after that. Yeah, we won’t go there.
Flint by Louis L’ Amour
Read a lot of L’Amour books. One of my dad’s favorites. This one I still remember the lava beds.
Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers
It gets a little lengthy in the middle but loved the story of redemption.
Dances with Wolves by Michael Blake
Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls
I would say Ghost Fox by James Archibald Houston, but I can’t remember if this is the “Fox” one I read or not, it sounds very familiar. Or it would be a toss up between Gary Paulsen’s The Foxman or Call of the Wild by Jack London. The Black Stallion series doesn’t exactly fit this criteria does it?
Well, there you have a glimpse into my past. Perhaps I need to read some more historical fiction. 🙂
And now for the people I tag:
