My theme for A- Z is the year my book takes place: 1881. I'll be posting about people, places, and random facts about the year as it relates - however distantly - to my book, West of Paradise.
One thing I didn't realize is just what a violent year 1881 was. I mean I knew the Wild West wasn't called wild because nothing happened but holy cow! There was a lot of killing going on and a fair amount done by those who were supposed to be the law. Anyway, as much as I love history and find it fascinating, I don't know as though I'd jump at the chance to travel back like Jack does. Aside from the violence, there was the whole lack of hygiene and I don't think I could stand not showering or brushing my teeth.
How about you, would you want to go back?
ps my apologies to those who saw this post before (oops) and commented.
