Many of these writers are scholarly and very accurate as they bring history alive. Erik Larsen, David McCullough and many others come to mind. And then there are the Historical Fiction writers - Auel, Chevalier, Follett, Kingsolver, Mantel, the list is long and enjoyable - who tell marvelous historically based stories but sometimes go a bit over the top - putting actual thoughts and words into the long dead minds and mouths of their subjects.
Anyway, Ciwt is enjoying her re-involvement in learning some history. Specifically the history of San Francisco in connection with becoming a San Francisco Walking Tour Guide. Her training starts in two weeks and lasts 6 months, so if you are one of those who still dreads history, maybe you'll want to take a CIWT break and check back in the Fall. Or maybe Ciwt won't actually write much about history or will write it in a way that actually holds your interest or maybe you'll miss other topics she writes about. So, she thinks...stay tuned.
