Congratulations to Anne F. Hyde for becoming a Pulitzer finalist!
Her book, Empires, Nations & Families: A History of the North American West, 1800-1860, was named a finalist in the History category.
Earlier this year, she was awarded the 2012 Bancroft Prize, one of the most coveted awards in the field of history.
Empires, Nations, and Families shows how the world of river and maritime trade effectively shifted political power away from military and diplomatic circles into the hands of local people.
Congrats again, Anne!
