This Place: 150 Years Retold

Beautifully illustrated, these stories are an emotional and enlightening journey through magic realism, serial killings, psychic battles, and time travel.

To be honest I did not enjoy this book, I struggle with graphic novels.  That being said it is an informative book with lots of history.  It is a collection of 10 short stories so is an “easy” read that can be picked up for a short time and the illustrations are well done.
