Fiction: Historical - General eBooks

Historical fiction tells a story that is set in the past. That setting is usually real and drawn from history, and often contains actual historical persons, but the main characters tend to be fictional.

Writers of stories in this genre, while penning fiction, attempt to capture the manners and social conditions of the people or times presented in the story, with due attention paid to period detai. Frederic Remington is a good example of a historical fiction author. He specialized in depictions of the Old American West, specifically concentrating images of cowboys, American Indians, and the U. S. Cavalry.
