“I believe that the ongoing factual narrative of real-world history makes today’s much-loved TV “reality shows” look pretty lame by comparison. In the fields that I specialize in, such as the development of frontier America, the fur trade, overland trails, gold rushes, cattle ranching, and warfare on this continent in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, events often took on the aspects of a riveting narrative that even skilled fiction writers are hard-pressed to surpass. I celebrate this, and employ as an integral part of my pedagogy the extensive experience I have had as an historical interpreter and “living history” program developer for U.S. and state park services and the United States Army, as well as relevant artifacts and material culture, to enhance and illuminate historical understanding of topical themes in the classroom.”
