Sarum: The Novel of England
I learned so much from this one. His speculations on Stonehenge alone are worth the price of the book. Rutherford writes books like those of James A. Michener but with a somewhat more formal style, which sometime drags, and that's where the patience comes in. But it's all worth it. His novels begin in the Stone Age and conclude today. I wish my high-school teachers had used such books to teach me. I would have sat up straighter. And this is a very big book. Not a quick read.
