|(NOTE: In order to have as few historical time periods as possible, I altered history a bit, as you may have noticed by this list. Also, many of these periods are either interchangeable or perhaps the line between them is fuzzy. So if you are interested in a particular time period, try several searches with related key words -- Civil War, Riverboat, or Frontier, for example -- to find the books you are seeking.)|
