Historical Fiction

Contrasting the heavily illustrated pictorial maps that are normally associated with this genre, this relatively plain literary map simply lists the last names of many American writers along with their principal works within the borders of the state in which the book takes place.  As with many literary maps, while many of the works included may have been commercial successes at the time of the map’s publication in 1956, not all of them are still acclaimed today. Some classics are included, however, such as Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell and The Last of the Mohicans by James Fenimore Cooper.
