Big Book List: Historical Fiction Pre 1900s Edition

I have caught wind of a Historical Fiction project happening now! If you are one of the students looking for Historical Fiction set before the 1900s then this is the list for you! If you just love historical fiction then you have stumbled upon a great resource. Keep in mind that this list features books for varying reading levels and maturity levels. Not all books will be appropriate for every reader. I hope that you will find at least a couple of titles that will pique your interest. There is a Historical Fiction display (as seen to the left) in the Teen Area with many of these titles on it for easier browsing. As always, myself and other staff are here to help so let us know if you have trouble locating any other these books.
