How Do I Find Out More About Kenneth Roberts?

Before beginning this site, I performed just basic searches on Google for any information on Kenneth Roberts.  Sadly, all I got were short bios that all sounded alike, and this probably because they all referenced the same sources (primarily Jack Bales’ two books on Roberts.  You can reference a short bio on Jack Bales  from a link on the right).

As an instructor, I rarely refer my students to Wikipedia.com because of how fluid information seems to be on this site (at least in regards to how easily one can adjust information on there).  However, in the case of info on Kenneth Roberts, Wikipedia is one of a few sites that carries extensive (compared to what’s out there) info on Roberts.  So, if you would like to have a brief lesson into Kenneth Roberts in general, refer to the Wikipedia article here.  If you want to catch a glimpse into Kenneth Roberts the person, see Bales’ article located on Dartmouth’s Library Bulletin site here.

If you know of other sites that provide better or more info, let me know!

  1. I started reading Kenneth Roberts in junior high. My father was a history teacher and he gave me Northwest Passage and suggested I read it. I have always thought that the march from St. Francis in that book was one of the most exciting passages ever written, and I can still recall paragraphs almost verbatim. Although KR is not as popular as he was in the thirties and forties (he was on the cover of Time magazine upon the publication of Oliver Wiswell), his books will always be remembered by those who enjoy reading American history dramatized as rousing adventure fiction.
