Summary: John Jakes, often called "the people's author" and "godfather of the historical novel," has made American history come to life in his series The Kent Family Chronicles and The North and South Trilogy.

Never glossing over the nation's flaws (sla...very, materialism, a double-edged Manifest Destiny), Jakes nevertheless affirms American values.
