Forgotten Tales
Forgotten Tales
It goes without saying that American history is an expansive field of study. That said, it’s all too easy to get caught up in the study of iconic events that make headlines and fill more generalized history textbooks at the expense of everything else. Regional interest literature can introduce you to lesser known gems that tend to get lost in the shuffle.
These gems include but are not limited to local legends, amazing sightings, and quirky incidents that have contributed to the local flavor of communities from all across the nation. The Forgotten Tales series from History Press treats you to a fresh look at American history and local lore, one region at a time.
