Today is Columbus Day so I'm including 3 links here to some historical books to that topic, but followed by a couple more that are just really good starting places for readers to do their own searches into history. For free. Online. Available to everyone! LOVE history. And love that it's available for download (or reading online) for free. Millions and millions of free books and texts.
(Warning: I get lost for hours in these cyber bookshelves....)
