Historical Novels: 3,000 of Them, Indexed

"Over 3000 Historical Novels
Listed by Time and Place

"People have been enjoying historical fiction since 800 BC when Homer wrote about the Trojan War in the Iliad. Historical novels carry us out of our own time and place into worlds that may seem utterly different from ours. And yet these worlds really existed. A deep understanding of them can help us understand our own time and our own motivations better...."

There's quite a range, from Jean Auel's "The Clan of the Cave Bear" to Alice Walker's "The Color Purple."
