Introducing my new book…

A Grizzly in the Mail and Other Adventures in American History

A Grizzly in the Mail and Other Adventures in American History

No blog posts recently for two reasons: My attention is focused on my new book, which will be appearing in bookstores soon. It is about various projects I’ve worked on over my career in some of America’s most visited history museums and shows that the pursuit of history is FUN! It is available for pre-order now. Check out the website

Please tell your history-loving friends and history teaching friends about this book. What can one do with a history degree? Here is an answer. It’s popular history with an undercurrent of scholarship and important questions like: who owns history? Who has the right to tell what story?

Second reason for my lack of posts recently? Another book in the works and a deadline next week. This one is the fascinating story of the first flight around the world. Few people know about it, but it’s an adventure story of courage in the face of danger. It was literally a race around the world.

My travels start again next week, so look for some new blog posts in the coming weeks. Thanks for reading historyplaces!

    Former Linglestown gal here. It’s amazing the amount of history that surrounded us. I missed the history bug, but am picking up bits and pieces as an adult. Any chance your next book could be aimed at the elementary child level?
