I love history. For the last few years I have been studying the History of North American. Because I get bored easily I prefer books that not only have great information but their writers are good storytellers. Here is a list of my 4 favorite history books and why I like them.
I Albions Seed by David hackett Fischer. Ever wonder why your Grandma is the way she is? Well this book might help. This book covers 4 british cultural types and explains their customs, clothing, relationships, religion and what societies they created when they became Americans. This is a big thick book, but I wish is was bigger because I was intrigued by all the information.
I have wanted to do a hummingbird print for quite a while. Anyone who has had dealings with hummers knows what the crown is all about. A couple years ago I went to Grey Feather Lodge in New Mexico. Grey Feather is a bird watcher’s haven. They have a large porch from which they hang a ton of hummingbird feeders. There must have been a hundred or more Hummers. It was somewhat terrifying. It was like being swarmed by a hundred really large, angry bees. Luckily, they don’t sting, but there were a few times that I thought that I might leave the lodge with new piercings. If you are ever in this situation don’t get between a hummer and his feeder. You have been warned.
