Below is a list of my favorite historical literature:
1.) The obligatory Cold Mountain. Frazier's writing style and language had a tremendous impact on my writing. Word usage, language, is key to my love of a book.
2.) All Howard Bahr novels
3.) Enemy Women by Paulette Jiles
4.) Legends of the Fall (and other stories) by Jim Harrison
5.) In The Fall by Jeffrey Lent
|I highly recommend these novels.|
Browsing through my bookshelf, I rediscovered my copy of Mary Emmerling's American Country Classics. Here's a few photographs from the book published in 1990. The key word is classics.
Love the painted floor.
Love the symmetry of the baskets and the simplicty of the chair.
Blurry, but love the paint on paneling. Makes me feel better about my dining and living rooms
I love the chairs. Very modern country.
Just wanted to share this photo of my novel in progress. Makes it more "real" to me when I see it in pictures. I'm not totally old school; it's on a flashdrive, as well.
