Like many of you I read A LOT of historical fiction. I am in a dry spell and need some recommendations. I prefer kindle books, but will order paper if it is a must read. I like long books or even better a series of long books. I have read all of Clavell, Wilbur Smith, Ken Follet, Winds of War, Hawaii, Rutherford, and all related books. I just finished the Physician and Shaman (no kindle version) and I cannot recommend these books strongly enough.
I especially like adventurish books about sea travel or pioneers or 1800's/1900's but welcome anything older. Can you help me?
