Since we’re almost halfway through Non-Fiction November I thought I’d put together a list of history book recommendations. Many people’s experience of reading history has been dull and tedious, filled with names and dates and very little ‘story.’ History DOES NOT have to be boring! I promise!
If you’re interested in learning something new while being immersed in great storytelling check out one (or all) of these non-fiction history books…you won’t regret it!
Women’s (Her)story: Women’s stories have long been neglected in the historical record but these books tell their varied stories and honor women’s many contributions and sacrifices to humanity.
Biography: If you’re looking to know more about the lives and motivations of unique and interesting individuals, be sure to pick up one of these amazing biographies.
General History & Ethnography: Take a look at history from a new perspective!
