If you liked "Mayflower" and "The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex" and other books by Nathaniel Philbrick who lives on Nantucket, you will really like Bunker Hill, the story of the city on the hill, a siege, and a revolution. Philbrick covers a great period of history in the 1770s in and around Boston.
