From recreating the experience of sailing as Captain Cook did in Blue Latitudes to fighting as Civil War soldiers did with Confederates in the Attic, Horwitz’s history is always vivid and immediate. His new book presents a detailed account of John Brown’s raid on Harper’s Ferry and captures the country’s tension on the eve of the Civil War.
