We can discuss terms, but Holt, the publisher, does not list this as a
history book on its site.
Maybe I am looking for it wrong. The terms used aere samples of descriptions
used for the book, including the publishers site.
No one, even the publisher, seems to want to call it a history book.
Maybe its an iambic billameter poem?
