I have read a lot of books whose stories revolve around the royal families of Great Britain. I used to have a copy of Mary Queen of Scots by Antonia Fraser, but after having tried several times to get through it, I finally gave it away. This Margaret George book is a much better read IMO.
It say kings and queens on the other volume, but we know who the really great rulers are. This reference book really comes in handy when I am watching a show about jolly old England in the days past and I need to refresh my memory as to who was white, red, Tudor, Stuart, etc. My world history teacher was German, so England got a brief mention in high school when it came to World History.
Do you enjoy fictional biographies?
Quincy Mine: Q is not such an easy letter. I only know of this area because it is one of the day trips in my 'Michigan Day Trips' book. If you have just left Pictured Rocks, you are in the right area to take a tram ride down a mine. Sounds like fun, right? The Quincy Mine is also a part of the Keweenaw National Historical Park.
