I've just seen the Revenant. Oh my god, it was good, I'm now really interested in that period of American history.

Does anyone know of a good book? I don't mind if it's fiction or factual.

Maybe have a look at the following...

The Mapmaker's Children by Sarah McCoy

Crossing Purgatory by Gary Schanbacher

East of Eden by John Steinbeck

I wouldn't say the 19th century was very early American history! I second East of Eden though, I loved reading it.

What's in the 19th century? trip's books? I don't mind, I'll give them a look, thank you!

It's the 16/1700s I think I'm interested in. What happened right at the beginning.

not a book but if you get a chance to catch up with the series John Adams, do it - it's great, especially the first couple of episodes.

Ok great, DH already has that actually so I'll watch it!

Will get East of Eden too. Thanks smile
