This summer, I’ve listened to the Audible (audio) editions of three Old West nonfiction recounts of tales and legends in America’s history. My starred ratings illustrate how much I found them worthwhile, enjoyable, and informative. Love history? These three are worth checking out.
Queen Victoria reigned from age 18 to age 81; June 1837 until her death in 1901. Anything that falls within this time, whether those English-speaking countries were her subjects or not, is referred to as the Victorian Era. The United States definitely had a Victorian Era–and the sheer quantity of significant historical occurrences, inventions, developments, social happenings–is astounding. This overview sheds light on this favored backdrop (Victorian Era American West) for fiction.
