===================

In August…


[PUBLISHED IN 2021]

Of The Power of Geography by Tim Marshall, Journey & Destination writes, “It’s a book I’d be more than happy to read again in order to digest all the details, or to dip into as a reference when any of the countries are mentioned in the news or current affairs.”

[BIOGRAPHY]

 

“[Devil in the Grove by Gilbert King] is part biography, part history, and part legal thriller as it goes into deep detail in the Groveland case.”, writes The Curly Geek at The Book Stop, “I keep thinking I know the history [of racism in the US] and then I realize how very much I don’t know.

[WARTIME EXPERIENCES]

Maphead writes, “I found [Sons and Soldiers: The Untold Story of the Jews Who Escaped the Nazis and Returned with the U.S. Army to Fight Hitler by Bruce Henderson] hard as hell to put down and one of the most pleasant surprises of 2021.”

[TRAVEL]

 

From Jo at Booklover Book Reviews, “In Uprising, [Nic] Low explores the pre and post-colonial history of the Southern Alps of New Zealand at the same time as he explores the terrain, the former at times just as treacherous. Particularly compelling and well-paced are the chapters where he has interspliced his own experience on a particular walk with the known and imagined experiences of historical adventurers (both Maori and European settlers). His evocative descriptions render the Southern Alps’ with a sense of grandeur and otherworldly gravitas that helps bridge the gap between history and fantastical origin stories.”

[PUBLISHED IN 2021]

Laurel-Rain writes, “As I delved into The Reckoning, [Mary L. Trump] I think I was expecting more about our personal experiences living under the rule of a fascist narcissistic president, someone who put all of us at risk and did nothing to mitigate the crises he created.

    These all look very good. I still have not read any non fiction this year, but I might try one soon.

    I’d like to get hold of Sons and Soldiers. Sounds intense but so good.

    Thanks for your spotlight on The Reckoning. This has been a great year for nonfiction for me. I have already gone past my goal for the year, and I’m still going, I think!

    Enjoy your week and your books.
