Novels

  • American Gods, by Neil Gaiman - It might not be entirely set in the right historical period, but it's still one of the best works of American fantasy-fiction ever written, even if the author is a Brit. Highly recommended, especially for campaigns which deal with spirits and/or deities. Look especially to the "Coming to America" sections.
  • Call of the Wild, by Jack London - A tale of kidnapping, slavery, violence, rescue, friendship, and survival in the harsh Arctic... from a sled dog's perspective.
  • Roots: The Saga of an American Family, by Alex Haley - A sprawling (and true!) epic of an American family, from enslavement to emancipation and beyond.
  • The Song of Hiawatha, by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow - Though it's only loosely based on actual Indigenous stories (and includes a few episodes that Longfellow just made up out of whole cloth) and gets most of the names wrong, this lengthy poem gives the same epic treatment to Native American heroes that was formerly reserved for protagonists of Greco-Roman epics. Excellent Cahokian League adventure-material here, not to mention ideas for some wicked villains and awesome equipment.
  • Waterlily, by Ella Cara Deloria - A rare glimpse into the realities of precontact tribal life. This book is made even more unusual by the fact that it is told from a woman's perspective, making it a rare tale indeed.

  • To Build a Fire, by Jack London - A very short story of how quickly things can go fatally wrong when travelling the wilderness.
  • The Wendigo, by Algernon Blackwood - The author's naked racism is a little shocking to modern sensibilities, but the way the author slowly ratchets up the spook-factor while denying us any true knowledge of the beast is masterfully done.
