Review:

"It is rare that books about writing are well-written. This is a well-presented story that should keep students' attention throughout. It is also brilliantly practical. This is the computer manual that tells you to plug in the machine first. It is a work that students will read and that faculty can rely on." "Storey's book is a first-rate guide for students who are new to the field of history and to the processes of historical research and writing. He offers a useful framework for organizing and successfully completing a major research project in a history class."--Ellen Stroud, Oberlin College"It is rare that books about writing are well-written.
